Changing voltage settinge of EZ-Wire II
- Hi everybody,
I have a Whisper H40 with an EZ-Wire II unit, operating on 36V.
As it appears that the H40 needs rather high winds to speed up enough
to generate the needed voltage, I'm thinking of reconfiguring my
system to 12V.
Experiments show that on a 12V battery it produces (a little) already
on very low winds, and as it doesn't need to speed up that much, it
makes less much noise (happy neighbours!).
As SWWP doesn't seem bothering to answer my question (until now) I'll
ask it here:
Does anyone know if different stators are used in the generator
itself for different voltage-settings, and if so, is there a way to
find out if I've got the right one (by measuring generated (unloaded)
voltage on given RPM or something like that)?
If not, can I alter the voltage-setting of the EZ-Wire by myself, and
if so, how is it done?
I'm even thinking of making it a dual-voltage system (12V on low, 36V
on high winds), but I won't bother you with that at this moment.
(Although, if anyone has done it already?!?)
Thanks in advance,
