Any one tried running a large capacitor with a grid tie?
When I would see the little turbine spinning more than fast enough to put out power and the kill-a-watt meter would be reading 0.
It takes that inverter what seems like up to 10 or 15 seconds to do what ever it needs to do to start putting out power out to the grid.
So I added a 0.1F 40v capacitor and that seemed to help some.
The next day I found my 2.4F 28v capacitor and it made a big difference on the more windy days. But it seems to hurt the wind turbine out put on the less windy days. When the capacitor is discharged it almost acts like the + and - are shorted together when the blades try to first turn. But as long as its an active day and the blades almost never stop it seems to help whole lot.
