Title: Grid-Tie Wind Turbines?
Post by: voiceofreason on June 05, 2006, 11:31:49 PM
Which of the Navitron Wind Turbines ar suitable for grid-tie? Is there a suitable grid-tie inverter or are there suitable inverters available that iare 'approved' that would be compatible with any of the Navitron Range? Does anyone know who is best to arrange export metering with or what the minimum 'excess' export in terms of kw one would have to export to receive any payment? Would be nice if site showed which turbines can be grid tied and the models or availability of suitable gt inverters.

The new dutch prototype grid connection inverter will utilise the power from a 200W, 300W or 500W 24v navitron wind turbine.

The SMA Windy Boy series can be used with the 2kW, 5kW, 10kW and 20kW Navitron turbines, assuming you go for the 220/240v option. We are bringing out a high-voltage 1kW wind turbine shortly, for a lower cost grid-connect wind turbine solution.
