Micro Hydro Turbine Powers Romanian Hotel and Fishery

 

System installed in the heart of Transylvanian Alps in Romania, at about 200 Km North from Bucharest.  The system was designed to supply the required energy to a small hotel & fishery.  The power is generated by a small micro hydro turbine that has 3KW power.  The energy produced by the turbine is delivered directly to the battery bank. The total capacity is 600Ah at 48V.  The required 3-step charging process, has to be very accurate and can be done only with a TriStar-MPPT-60 from Morningstar together with a resistive dump load.  Photo courtesy of Ecovolt.
