I have lived off grid with a simple solar setup for 10 years now and have been given a small wind generator which I would like to add into the setup. I have never set up wind before and when my cousin gave me this he said it had everything to hook it to the battery bank. My question is do I need to have a "dump" or does this controller have some kind of breaking system so I wont have to ?
A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.
Looks like that controller will brake the turbine above the listed voltage So no dump load. That is pretty common for those little turbines. The good thing is it is separate from the turbine. Often they are built into it making it un fixable. Unless you have 300 watts of the older 12 volt solar panels kicking around I'd skip the solar end as its probably one of the older PWM controllers.
Best of luck, David
