A 300W Wind Generator Turbine, sold by the following link.
KOEKRAF ALTERNATIVE ENERGY my first question is,
Have any of the members purchased one of these turbines? and if so are they happy with their purchase. i.e. are they happy with the above turbines performance? My 2nd question is, how can I check that the turbine is working at ‘ground level’ before I mount it at a height of 30 ft?
I recently mounted the turbine at ground level to see what way the blades would turn and they turned from right to left? Having done that, I connected an electric drill that has a reverse gear that turned the turbine from right to left, now before I continue, there are three wires ,
Their colours are, yellow/green, white/and black, prior on taking the turbine out of the packaging the label stickers that were on each individual wire fell off ! So I e-mailed the above link, and I was informed that the following wires are as follows, the yellow cable is always plus and white is minus? No mention of the black wire?
But on further examination of the wires I discovered that an earth label was attached to the yellow/green wire .Now I like everyone knows that yellow/green means an earth! Having said all that I shall continue with the above ! Having the drill in reverse and the shaft of the turbine going like the hammers of hell, I touched every wire to see what wire would give me an electrical shock! Not even a tickle! Now I would like to ask the members have I done something wrong somewhere?
