Need help for project plans (Solar and Wind Generator)

  1. Jun 7, 2017 #1
    Hi, I'm trying to build an auto-sufficient station, this is my "blueprint" for mounting everything together :


    and I would like to know if it was possible to calculate the voltage and intensity entering the Charge Controller without measuring it, if connecting the WT and the SP in parallel is a good idea, and how much current intensity is needed to charge a 12V battery (even if it has to take many hours) any tip is appreciated ! ^^

    Every charge controller I have owned came with recommendations for connections including serial/parallel in the manual.

    I would follow the manufacturer's advice.
