I have one of these motors that i want to use as a wind turbine generator. http://www.ebay.com/itm/181392138415?_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2648&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT
I want my setup to be fairly inexpensive so ive searched for ages without any result for a charge controller that accepts high enough DC voltage for my 120v DC motor, and doesnt cost a fortune....
All cheaper wind charge controllers seem to run directly of AC and the once that do run of DC cost waaay too much.
Is there any chargers that fit my needs? If not, how high voltage should i expect from the motor? Could a simple 60V buck converter be enough? http://www.ebay.com/itm/200W-15A-DC-DC-8-60V-TO-1-36V-5V-12V-24V-Buck-Converter-Step-down-power-module-/181849944290?hash=item2a5719f0e2:g:COAAAOSw3ydV4L2I
I hope you can help me
