Subject Mixing the AirX Wind turbine charge controller with a PV controller

QUESTION
------------------------------------------------------
If I have a pair of Photowatt 90's for my remote cabin how do I prevent them from conflicting with the AirX Wind turbine I want to install?

ANSWER
------------------------------------------------------
Dear Sir or Madam,

Thank you for contacting the Alternative Energy Store. Since there is an internal voltage regulator in the AirX Wind turbine you do not need to purchase another charge controller. The best way to remedy the two charge controllers from "fighting" is to adjust the set point of the wind turbine. You need to adjust the set point just slightly higher than the PVs so that one turns off before the other, this will keep them apart by a few 10ths of a volt and avoid any conflict. Please feel free to contact us if you have any additional questions.

Sincerely,
Sarah
