our website www.mwands.com I’am demonstrating our new 3 phase brake switch and 3 phase rectifier combo designed by Missouri Wind And Solar. Also our all in one wind and solar charge controller board with inverter and dump load for wind turbines. At the end of the video i show our latest digital amp, volt meter, easy install. Thanks for watching. Jeff, MWAS

Wind Max wind turbine Happy owner

This is my Wind max wind turbine. I have been running the 1kw for over a year and i have had not one problem. Please do your homework when buying a micro wind turbine. The warranty for the Windmax is in place so a professional can wire it in, as well as give the homeowner a gauruntee on the wiring, then Windmax can be assured the turbine will work properly for any proper troubleshooting that may be needed in the future. Most people only have a very limited electrical background. Take a look around youtube and you will see why Windmax wants a professional to wire them. These turbines are not meant to be altered. They are meant to be taken right out of the box, installed, and used at a site that has enough wind to even consider a wind turbine. Do you see Windmax, Bergey, Raum, Skystream, Proven, or any other proffesional sealed PMA-wind turbine offering 4 different style blades sets, hubs, spray chemicals to seal the insides of the PMA? I wonder why? Wind is suppose to be simple, not a nightmare of cost and confusions. Again, my name is Larry from Leamy Electric Inc. A speical thanks goes out to Jeff Harmon of Missouri Wind and Solar for doing outstaning video’s on the wind max. Please check out his video’s on the wind max as they are very informative. If you want real facts please email me i will be happy to share.

Homemade Wind Turbine – POC

Here is a proof of concept that I did for a Wind Turbine and Solar charging system connected to a charge controller system. The solar panel is simply two small 5w panels wired in parallel to get 10w of power. The wind turbine is a custom built housing with a small PMA motor connected to 24in blades. The turbine puts out about 100 150 watts on average; however I will likely need to use some type of 2:1 gear setup with more blades to get more efficiency from the motor.

Windmax vs. car PMA Wind Turbines

A look at the Windmax HY400 power performance as compared to a plastic sword bladed car PMA system. Note: Not ONE of the car PMA turbine suppliers has posted a video proving their power claims. That should tell you something. If you do buy from them, use Paypal, otherwise you can kiss your money goodbye.

Small Wind Turbine Performance Comparisons – Reality Check

Compares the Real World Watts of installed small wind turbines. Windynation Windtura 750, Windmax HY400, and car PMA units are featured. Make sure your supplier can prove their numbers. Do not just take their word for it. Windblue is the only credible car PMA based turbine supplier I have found. Most of the others just use hype and BS hoping you’re too stupid to realize what’s going on. Don’t fall for it. Another trick to watch out for are those bashing Chinese turbines or PMAs, when in fact, theses have proven to be far better performers than ones based on Delco alternators that are gutted and juice-up by guys hoping to make a quick buck on worth of parts. This is always coupled with a promise of incredible power “potential.” Again, don’t fall for it. I have no association with any supplier. I’m an independent Engineering consultant.
