    I have a 5kw ginlong (www.ginlong.com) PMG with a open circuit voltage of 700V at 200 rpm.
    I want to use this generator with a wind turbine to heat water without using any batteries at all. The load circuit should include a heating element powered by thyristors.
    Is there a ready made control circuit available, or can someone give me a complete circuit that is ready to be put together?

    Any help would be much appreciated.

    I believe 700Vs is a little out of AACs range,'get nervous above 48V.

    Hi Bernard, I can overcome the high voltage easy enough, I think, but what are AAC's?

    what are the specifications of the heating element?

    and what is that generator? Is it an AC / DC generator? If AC, .... 3 phase / 1 phase?

    Do u want to use a normal 1000 watt immersion type water heater??
