Does anyone have any experience with the Xantrex MPPT
controller. It looks like most people use the Outback or BlueSky controllers but the Xantrex looks like a good choice to me as well.
I'm also planning to use a Xantrex C45 as a load diversion controller to dump excess energy to a 12V 300W water
The setup is likely to be 3 x Kyocera
KD185GX-LPU solar panels
and 2 x Air Breeze wind
generators mounted on an anodized aluminum
arch across the stern of a catamaran
The solar panels
will be connected to the MPPT
controller of course, the wind
generators will be connected directly to the house bank, the Xantrex C45 will be connected directly to the house bank and will use the water
heater element as a dump load.
Seems like a reasonable setup to me but this would be my first foray into solar
and wind generators.
Comments, constructive or not welcomed.
