Barcelona as switchable wind -> battery charge controller?
« on: March 19, 2020, 08:19:32 PM »
My situation: have Proven/Kingspan/Whoever-bought-them-now 6kW wind turbine with rectifier box feeding WindyBoy grid-tied inverter.  Also have 1.5kw of PV feeding 48VDC AGM battery bank thru Midnite Classic, which feeds a Schneider (before it became Conext) inverter for must-have house loads. 

What I think I'd like to do: rig up a switch/contactor to manually select feeding the Windy Boy or the Barcelona to supplementally feed the battery bank (or get some use out of the genny when the grid goes down).  Barcelona specs appear to make this feasible.  Recommendations/Show Stoppers?
