Hugh has just posted a useful article on battery charge controllers.  Thought peps might find it useful.

Great link Andy,
           Great reading. I leaves me wanting to build one of Hugh,s designs but I will wait a while longer. Still, I would not want to come down from 120vdc..
       @ 50 of those magnets,43 coils I would have a 3kw x 120vdc  baby,,  or,,or am I slightly out, whistlie
                                                            Biff
  Ooops  I am referring to the following article on Turbine construction.

RIGHT, Biff I think 2018 should be the year an HP turbine went up at your place.  Then you'll no longer have to worry about the weather (wot me worry) and overspeeding.  I'm sure Hugh could design a nice set up for you. Perhaps Grid Tied and then your worries would be over.

Just think of the fun to be had. 12 coils of 1.2mm dia copper wire with 370 turns on each. That's a couple of afternoons sorted. Go on you'll love it Biff and lots of photo please.

All the best to you though.

Cheers.

Personally I am looking forward to some info on DIY PWM tech. Oztules from the other places makes his own but has never had time to do a walk through. Maybe one day!
