Micro Hydro Turbine Powers Romanian Hotel and Fishery

Application: Mobile Hydro
Transylvanian Alps, Romania
TriStar MPPT 60
System size:
3 kW with battery bank

This system in the heart of Transylvanian Alps in Romania supplies energy to a small  hotel and fishery.  A 3-kW micro hydro turbine generates power delivered directly to a battery bank (600 Ah at 48). The installation requires a highly-accurate three-step charging process, only accomplished with a TriStar MPPT 60 and a resistive dump load.
