WIND GENERATOR WHITE LIGHTNING 48V 1000W PERMANENT MAGNET GENERATOR HURRICANE
White Lightning Hurricane 1000 Permanent Magnet Alternator/Generator
Great for 48 Volt
You will need a real wind turbine charge controller with buck boost MPPT to properly run this unit. Time lock relay open shut do not have a charging algorithm and we cannot recommend them to our customers. They are tough on blades bearing from the constant slamming open and shut of relays nearly 1500 max output.
If you are tired of playing around and want to make some real power this is the one for you!
You should consider before buying a permanent magnet alternator or wind turbine from anyone: Wind Generators do not produce any power until the RPM of the spinning generator creates voltage exceeding that of the battery bank or grid tie inverter for which it is powering. Until this point the generator spins freely. This RPM level is often referred to as the "cut- in" point. Torque not RPM dictates how much power is produced. Using longer blades, larger swept area, and more blades typically make more torque.
Hooking a Permanent magnet alternator to a 5 horsepower or more Gasoline engine has nothing to do with a realistic display of what you would see in the real world. Obviously the torque input from this device would readily exceed what you may expect from a wind turbine. Our run video uses a 10 amp 110 volt drill as a power plant. This produces approximately 1100 watts of input power. This should offer the buyer a realistic perception of the power with which they can expect to see from the product.
This is the PMA we are using in the new "White Lightning" wind turbines from Hurricane offered for sale individually. Our run video is based on a horsepower input of just under 1.5 HP and according to the Law of Conservation of energy, energy can neither be created nor destroyed but merely change form.
In this exchange of electrical input to mechanical input back to electrical output measurement you can see the efficiency of this generator.
