Hybrid inverter / charge control devices can damage wind turbine generators because of stopping it!
Although these hybrid devices are called multi-purpose battery inverters and solar panel charge controllers; as can be understood from their affordable prices, their hardware content is really limited. It does not operate well with wind turbine's dynamic energy production performance (variable resistance and current).
These hybrid multi-purpose inverter / charge controllers can access to wind turbines electronically through batteries and can stop the wind turbines (electronic short circuit braking) unexpectedly, continuous brake. It stops the wind turbine and does not allow it to generate energy. Wind turbine engines (alternators) or the blades will be forced to stop unexpectedly because of this electronic short-circuit braking by the hybrid inverter/charger and wind turbine's generator or the blades will be damaged after a while for sure.
The short circuit braking from the hybrid multipurpose inverter / charge controller; due to the wind and the wind turbine being forced to stop by unexpectedly, can damage the generator, blades or mounting pole.
- If the wind turbine can not rotate because of the hybrid multipurpose inverter / charge controller, the energy can not be transferred to anywhere and it will damage the generator as a result.
- If the wind turbine can not rotate because of the hybrid multipurpose inverter / charge controller, the wind turbine can not rotate and the wind force can damage blades or mounting pole by its moment.
Wind turbines cannot be operated with these multi-purpose inverter / charge controllers, it is excluded from the manufacturer's warranty! All other battery inverters are suitable for the operation of wind turbines and are covered by the manufacturer's warranty, except for these hybrid multi-purpose inverter / charge controllers!
