24 v Windmill

by Alex
(Jamaica)

Hi how is everyone. I have a problem. I built a 24v wind mill but I am getting just about 7amps out of the mill and this mill is a 8ft 700 watts max mill. Would the feed wire from the mill down the tower have anything to do with the current or the height? Please give me some advice. Thank you

Windmill power
by: Tony

You have not given enough information for us to guess what power you should be getting.
Are the windmill blades sized correctly for the generator?
How high is the windmill?
What wind speeds are you getting?
Are there any obstructions around the windmill? These can reduce effective wind speeds due to turbulence
What cable size do you have coming from the generator?
How far from the tower to the battery?

Cable Length matters
by: Anonymous

Hi. Yes, the length of the cable is important. The longer it is the larger diameter the cable needs to be - otherwise you will lose voltage and power.
