Voltage Limiter Specifications

Available for the e150 (600W), e300i (1kW) and e400i (3kW)

IMPORTANT: This product is not designed to be used on a Kestrel Battery-charging system. The Voltage Limiter is solely to restrict the output voltage of a Kestrel wind turbine in Grid Tie applications and hybrid applications using an Outback MX60.

Sustainable/renewable energy sources such as wind turbines and hydro-generators are often connected to a charge controller or a Grid Tie inverter. Such components can exhibit operational modes that reduce the demand or disconnect the system from the generator. Any operational generator or alternator will exhibit high output voltages when no output is demanded.

The Kestrel Voltage Limiter uses electronic means to restrict the incoming voltage at a pre-designed value. The product uses linear technology causing no electrical disturbance during operation. This quality is paramount when powering any communication or computer equipment.

The Kestrel Voltage Limiter is passive and uses no energy whatsoever during normal operation. If for any reason the generator voltage rises, the limiter restricts this voltage rise to a preset value. It achieves this limiting by loading the generator. The product is housed in a steel enclosure for wall mounting. It is extremely reliable in operation and incorporates a failsafe design. Unit cooling is achieved by convection and three assisting fans.

Applications and Uses

Each Kestrel Voltage Limiter is primarily intended for use with a specific capacity and voltage of Kestrel wind turbine, which has either been installed with an in-line battery charge controller such as the Outback MX60 (click to download manual) or a Grid Tie inverter such as SMA Windyboy. Kestrel Voltage Limiter is designed for continuous operation on 100% duty cycle and requires no regular part replacement.

TYPICAL INSTALLATION EXAMPLES

A typical battery charging installation - The system comprises a Kestrel wind turbine, voltage limiter, alternative manufacture (NOT KESTREL-manufactured) battery charge controller and storage battery. Note that other electrical equipment will be required to comply with local installation requirements.

A typical Grid Tie installation - The system comprises a Kestrel wind turbine, voltage limiter and an alternative manufacture Grid Tie inverter. Note that other electrical equipment will be required to comply with local installation requirements.

* All Kestrel electronics comply with EMC requirements CIS22 Class B and are subject to change due to continuous innovation and development
