Re: Connecting Wind Generator to Heater
Welcome to the forum.
Yes, it's possible. How practical it is ... that's different.
For one thing electricity is not a very efficient way to heat things. You may find it doesn't provide enough heat to be worth the effort and expense. And there will be considerable amounts of both.
The #1 problem with wind power is that the site isn't really suitable for it, despite appearances. Turbines like sustained 20+ mph winds for good output. That's a lot of wind. They don't like light breezes which produce nothing nor gusts which spin them up and down and put terrible stresses on them.
The #2 problem is that most of the small wind turbines available are quite frankly junk. They don't produce anyplace near their rated values and they tend to fail fairly quickly and easily.
The #3 problem is the installs don't follow directions. You really do need it up in the air, away from turbulent winds. Lots of clear, open space. And a firm mast with guy wires all well anchored so the whole thing doesn't come crashing down around your ears - and possibly through your skull.
Otherwise, the idea of a turbine feeding a resistive heating element isn't uncommon at all; it is the typical "dump load" required on systems used to charge batteries. Once the batteries are full you need something to do with the continued energy production so that the turbine doesn't over-speed and fly apart. Sinking the excess Voltage to a water heater is quite common.
Keep in mind this would be very erratic and uncontrolled heat, as there would always have to be some element connected to take the power for the reasons mentioned above. No thermostats; it could conceivably get quite warm.
