WIND MODE - Classic Wind Curve Programming
Last Updated 2 months ago

Step 1 is 0 amps and the wake up voltage. So if the turbine cuts in at say 60v, set step 1 for say 52 or so volts so the classic is
awake and ready.  As far as the X and Y variables, you have the turbine voltage on one axis and the classic output amps on the other axis.
Take the turbine rating in watts and make an amperage curve. So lets we have a 2KW turbine and a 48v battery. We know this is about 40
amps, so make the 16 set points evenly spread from 0 to 40 amps so something like this:
1=0
2=1
3=4
4=7
5=10
6=13
7=16
8=19
9=22
10=25
11=28
12=31
13=34
14=37
15=40
16=43

Then build a curve for the input voltage. So lets say it cuts in at 60v, start with something like this:
1=60  (@ 0 Amps)
2=65
3=70
4=75
5=80
6=85
7=90
8=95
9=98
10=100
11=105
12=110
13=115
14=120
15=125
16=130
Then see what it acts and sounds like. Typically you can tell if it seems stalled or free wheeling and make the necessary adjustments.
Start with this initial curve then tweak it. Play around on the bottom around cut in until you are satisfied there and then move the
upper end up or down and see what is the proper direction. usually with a little persistence you can sneak up on the perfect wind
curve.
