If you have been searching for the perfect motor/generator for your wind generator project, this is it. This motor/generator has a
very low “cut in” rpm. The “cut in” rpm refers to the rpm’s required
for the unit to start charging a battery bank. To start charging a
battery bank, a generator MUST be producing a voltage that is higher
than the voltage of the battery bank. For a 12 volt battery bank, this
is approximately 13.5 volts and for a 24 volt battery bank this is
approximately 26 volts.
this motor/generator is rated for 2000 Watts (power = volts x amps) but
you will never see that much energy going into your battery bank. In
stiff winds, you will probably see about 200-400 Watts into a 12 volt
battery bank and around 600 Watts (max power) into a 24 volt battery
bank. This is a lot of power! Again, we could tell you this is a 2000
Watt generator and technically we would not be lying but you will never
see that kind of power.
