THIS GTI IS STRICTLY FOR EUROPEAN/AUSTRALIAN 50HZ COUNTRIES - NOT FOR USE IN THE US
Wind turbine 3 Phase AC or DC input version with dump load. For use with any 3 phase or DC wind turbines with 10v-30volt + output. If you have a 3 phase turbine simply use one of our 3 phase bridge rectifiers for AC turbines which will convert the 3 phase to DC. Simple plug and play operation with no batteries or controllers needed. Outputs clean pure sign wave. Also cleans the waveform supplied by the electric company to make your appliances run smoother and last longer.
Not like the ordinary inverters, the grid tied inverter lets you use the power generated from wind and solar power at any time WITHOUT the need for expensive energy storage units. Connection is made on the homeowner's side of the electrical meter into any outlet, so that locally produced power will offset any local load the homeowner has. The electrical meter will run slower, because power is being supplied on the homeowner's side.
This will result in LOWER electricity bills
Many USA and European power supply companies may actually pay for any excess power produced, making the grid-tied inverter an investment to our future !
What is it? How does a device that can handle various forms of 3 phase or DC electrical power input and convert it into AC power suitable for injection to the AC mains (or power grid )? The inverter is directly connected to the grid or mains, and is therefore called a "grid-tied inverter."
It is this easy: connect the grid-tied inverter to any solar or wind turbine DC or 3 phase power generating source(s) with a combined optimum output of max. 500W , and connect the inverter AC output to any of the home circuit (GFI) or regular AC outlets. Like you would plug a tv or lamp into.
No batteries are needed using this inverter with a wind turbine or solar panel system.
The output of the inverter is simply a power cord that plugs into any GFCI (ground fault circuit interrupter) socket in your home. These outlets are commonly found in wet locations such as kitchens, bathrooms or outdoors on a patio.
You can connect multiple units in parallel with additional wind turbines or solar panels, to ultimately have the meter spin backwards and feed the “Main Grid” during the daylight and nightime hours. This results in the electrical meter turning slower.
Thus... saving you money.
And the inverter will shut itself off in the event of a grid power failure, protecting utility workers upstream.
