Below is a basic diagram of the stand-alone, Home Turbine system that we built and run as described here:-

In a nutshell, the rotor turns the shaft inside the generator, which sends a current via cable to the Charge Controller Unit. The Controller unit adapts the voltage produced by the generator to the required volts to go on and charge the 12v batteries. The batteries are linked together (positive-positive and negative-negative). Additional current created is led off to the dump load. (In the above example, we have used 3 x 12v 100amp/hour Leisure Batteries. Basically this means that we can create a total of 300 amp/hours once fully charged, therefore, if we had to run an electrical appliance that runs on 10 amps/p/hour, the appliance would run for 30 hours on a full charge). Moving on, the 12volts from the charged batteries goes through the Power Invertor, which converts the 12 volts to 240 volts (the standard electrical current within the UK). From the Power Invertor you can plug in your 240v electrical sockets , from which you can plug in your electrical appliances/tools/TV/VCR etc etc...

Do not attempt to build a power generator if you have no knowledge or experience of electricity. Electricity is very dangerous and can maim and kill if not used correctly and not respected as such a threat. Generators can put out high voltage which can create severe hazards and fatalities. DO NOT attempt to erect a wind turbine on a windy day, rotor blades will rotate and can break and/or amputate limbs and/or kill. Any information found within this website is produced by amateur, backyard hobbyists, who have experience of the experiments shown, and respect electricity and its power. We are not professionals and this website is aimed at sharing what we have learnt to date. We cannot be held responsible for any errors/mistakes, incorrect information which may be found within. If you have any problems and/or queries regarding the use/installation/maintenance etc. of your power supply or turbine/generator etc. you should seek advice from a professional or from the supplier of your equipment.
