3 phase wiring question

  1. Jul 8, 2012 #1
    So I am trying to figure out how to wire a three phase generator. I understand the WYE connection, but I am stumped about the load connections and specifically what to do then. The generator will be connected to a wind turbine so I will be needing to charge batteries. So my main question is.....

    Do I connect a rectifier to each load and then to a battery which are in series? I have included a picture to make a question more clear on what I am talking about.

    Thanks for reading

    Hi Teachme. Didn't you ask this question somewhere before in the last couple of days? I saw it answered somewhere.
