I got the TLG500
up and running today despite the 4 deg weather here. We havenít had
any wind so I cant give you any specs. Iím attaching some photos of
the TLG500 up in the air.
Its about 23 feet up about 26 to the blade
Iíll send more
info on its performance as soon as I get it.
Sorry for the long
wait for the TLG findings. Iím still on the road to recovery from my
hospital stay. I am impressed with the results of the TLG 500. In a
5mph wind the TLG 500 is giving me 12 to 13 watts, 1 amp, and in a
12 to 15 mph wind Iím getting 50 to 55 watts, about 4 amps. I
attached some pictures of my wind speed indicator and my charge
controller showing wind speed and the power the TLG is giving me.
Iím still waiting for some 25 to 35 mph winds to see what power the
TLG500 will deliver. As soon as I gather to data I will forward it
to you. I have seen a 10 amp peak in a 20 mph wind last week.
I will keep you informed on more of my findings.
If I may I want
to put in a plug for your blades. Iíve been flying TLG
blades now for about 3 years and flying wind generators for
about 5. In that time, I have used a large variety of blades
available on the market from plastic composites, wood, other
metal, and aluminum material. None compare to the durability and
performance of the TLG products. From the Prairie Star MM to the
Boast Busters, performance is untouched from the competitors.
Never have I had failure due to metal fatigue or construction.
Now I have had some problems with trees, birds and poorly
anchored towers. But these drawbacks didnít cause the TLG blades
to snap or break, they only bent due to the collision of the
tree branches, birds, or of course the ground. Iíve read plenty
of articles that speak of metal fatigue or failure of aluminum
blades used on wind generators but have yet to see any of these
problems with Terryís blades, not a one.
So, if your in the marked for blades to complete your wind
generator project, put the TLG blades at the top of your list,
you wonít be sorry.
Hey Terry, We had a great day yesterday as far as wind goes. The
TLG was putting out some awesome power. I have attached some
pictures to show the wind speed with the power the TLG 500 was
putting out. 15 amps in a 28mph wind. This was a gust, but there
were several of them and the TLG 500 showed its true colors. Just
thought you would like to know.
