Wind charge controller question
Is there such a controller that when the batterys are full it disconnets the wind generator from the batterys and then brakes the generator. Brakes meaining it switches the wind gen to resistive load and eventualy shorts the generator leads. All the charge controllers I've found have the wind generator hooked directly to the Battery and a diversion load running from the battery's when fully charged. I don't want a diversion load running constantly from the batterys and want the wind gen to stop or be significantly slowed when no longer needed. So the wind gen is only connected to the batterys when needed.
