PV OUTPUT DATA

MARCH 2011  BACK TO FEBRUARY 2011  FORWARD TO APRIL 2011

3/1 Net meter 000051. Grid feed 37.93. PV 37.53, turbine 0.40.

3/2 Net meter 000038. Grid feed 32.32. PV 26.72, turbine 5.6.

3/3 Net meter 000027. Grid feed 34.60. PV 25.80, turbine 8.80. The Weather channel web site says 2 mph winds but clearly we have more. This is all turbine generation, except 68 watts currently from PV. You might want to check out WIND 4 to see the construction of our first home made turbine. Building your own turbine makes wind power affordable. If the first one works, I plan to build three more, the last, a high voltage 3 KW turbine located high on the mountain 2500 feet from my system. The graph below shows mean energy exported to the grid. It averages peak and minimum to a real export value. So in high wind the 3.2 KW Whisper 500 really is a 1 KW turbine. If the wind gets higher than this morning, the turbine furrels and looses power, rather than generates more. TRUTH IN ADVERTISING!!! I'm beginning to think, for a 10 KW grid tie in Missouri, we should have 8 KW PV and 8 KW wind. In truth the PV does better but rarely generates nameplate power. Anyway, 16 KW is what I'm going to try to work up to and see what happens. I really look forward to seeing the results from our home made axial flux generator using the 11 blade fan from Missouri Wind and Solar.

3/4 Net meter 000002. Grid feed 5.11. PV 1.71, turbine 3.40.

3/5 Net meter 000013. Grid feed 18.42. PV 2.12, turbine 16.30.

3/26 Net meter 999814. Grid feed 14.02. PV , turbine 10.80. I thought the turbine iced up in the evening. Now I see it has one field shorted out.

3/27 Net meter 999824. Grid feed 31.07. PV 29.57, turbine 1.50. Well, the turbine finally started generating again, don't know if it was ice or something else.
