    Hi to all,

    I would like to ask some questions about wind turbines:

    1 - For a given turbine, how do I select the appropriate (direct drive) PMG that matches the wind turbine?

    2 - In an off-grid configuration, if the batteries are fully charged, and the turbine is still producing electricity, can this electricity be used directly for household appliances, or is it dissipated in diversion loads?

    3 - In an off-grid configuration, is it possible to use the grid as backup (instead of fuel generator)?
