I start an activity whose purpose is to design a hydro generator for cruising sailboat.
it is a system that is placed in the back of a sailboat and generates electricity to recharge the batteries when the boat is moving.
Its characteristic is to produce electricity with a low fluid...
I am currently planning, trying to calculate and figure out what works best electricity wise, so I was wondering what everybody has on their boats:
- What Pannels (how many Watts), Wind generator, etc?
- Charge Controller (one or two or more?)
- How big a battery bank?
