Hi,

Wondering what the options are for G83-2 wind inverters? And ideally where to get them?!? Is there a list of approved models?

Thanks

I'm not aware of a consolidated list. Each manufacturer should say what certification their products have.

That makes sense as it's self certified as far as I know. Wondering whether anyone on here has bought a G83-2 approved inverter (new) recently - ideally in the sub 2kW range... It seems that SMA, Ginlong and Mastervolt  (the three companies I have bought before) have all discontinued their wind products in the past few years - wondering what else is out there.

SMA transformer inverters can usually be programmed for wind curves using the appropriate software and tool. Dunno which ones for sure but certainly the SMC 6000 as it's still used by Proven/Kingspan and I did one a year or so back. Aurora/ABB do dedicated wind ones too but their solar ones cannot be reprogrammed as far as I know, again you will need the software and interface to program it yourself.

Good luck, Paul

Good Morning All,

This is kind of related to this thread so I don't think it is a hijack.

I've had a query from somebody on the Microgen Database forum about the possibility of extending their 4kW grid tied solar by adding a 1kW wind turbine (no idea which model).

I guess they'll need a G59/3 capable inverter (or a G59/3 relay). If you can't get a hold of a G83/2 job then G59/3 is an absolute no-hoper?

Regards

       Hi All,
            Slightly off topic as I am considering putting in PV and possibley a Hugh wind turbine, as grid tie inverters seem to be a problem
              would it be possible to use an Oz inverter with a local grid.
             I realise this is not straight forward and any pionters would be welcome.
              I have tried seaching the forum for ideas but all the intresting posts have lost their pictures (thanks photobucket) and I always find pictures are a huge help when
              explaining ideas.

                        thanks

Good GTIís seldom give trouble at least not in the first 5 years and they can be had dead cheap new or for buttons off eBlag. They, unlike Ozís fine machine will be certified too, and if you do use wind then you will need one you can program a curve into.

Cheers, Paul
