G83 certification for the 3.6Kw and 6Kw inverters ensures that these products meet the  stringent United Kingdom requirements for quality, reliability, compliance with UK interconnection standards and, most importantly, optimum transformerless energy harvesting efficiency (in excess of 96%).

Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT), enables the Aurora inverter to use a 16-point power curve to optimize energy harvested from wind turbines. By means of proprietary MPPT circuitry and software, Aurora can be programmed to increase the energy extracted from the wind power curve (50-580 volts DC) in virtually any wind power system on the market today. .

Aurora wind inverters incorporate robust, high-efficiency designs that include features such as the capability to optimize the inverter抯 power curve to match the specific output characteristics of the wind turbine being used.

Aurora wind interfaces are available to condition the output of a micro-wind generator for use with a wind inverter; eliminating the need for any additional rectification. The Wind Interface Box is designed to specifically operate with the Aurora Wind Inverter. It has been matched to complete the power conversion package with diversion load control and wind speed feedback. In addition, there is an integrated RS485 communication link with optional RS232 converter  (we do not supply these but can provide details of a suitable supplier) and free communication software available to program/modify the power curve and monitor the unit.

You will usually need a dump load for every wind interface used. Usually the dump load power is sized based on 1.5 times the turbine capacity. ie for a 5kW turbine a 7500W dump load is used. However, for turbines with greater power than the inverter rating, then the dump load is sized based on 1.5 times the capacity of the inverter which in this case would be 9000W.

   However, it comes down to the characteristics of the controller and the turbine. If you can guarantee that the turbine/controller output voltage will not exceed 600V then you will not need a dump load. If the characteristics of the turbine are not well documented then it is probably a good idea to include a dump load in the system. If, for example, the load (grid) is removed for some reason, under no load conditions the turbine speed and therefore output voltage will increase considerably. If the voltage exceeds 580VDC then there is a strong possibility that the inverter will be damaged.

A wind interface is recommended for every inverter. However, you may find that the turbine manufacturer use their own controller and this may negate the need for the Magnetek interface unit and dump load
