Use the electricity

Charge a battery

To charge a battery we need DC current (a positive and negative wire), but the generator prouces 3-phase alternating current. Therefore we must rectify it.

Build a rectifier

Building a rectifier is as easy as feeding the 3-phase current into six 10A diodes. The Rload in the schematic can be two 12V batteries on a charge controller as the windturbine is designed to output around 24V. Please find more on these electronics on the website of Hugh Piggot:
