Understanding 3-Phase Wiring for Your Wind Turbine

If you're ready to install your small wind turbine, you'll need to understand where the DC to AC rectifier goes. Ideally, the rectifier will be close to the battery bank to shorten the amount of fine stranded welding cable needed to reduce the cost of wire.

Your Freedom wind turbine is a wild three phase AC output and must be rectified to DC before the connection is made to the batteries. The quick disconnect represents a brake switch or other disconnect method for your wind turbine.
