Inverter
Cyclone wind turbines can be used in conjunction with any suitable inverter. Joliet Technology
highly recommend the use of SMA Windy Boy inverters which are manufactured and configured to
order by SMA for Cyclone wind turbines.

SMA are well known to be world leaders in inverter technology.


SMA inverters carry an extendable 5 year warranty.
SMA inverters can be configured for on or off grid use anywhere in the world, negating the
requirement for two types of inverters.
SMA inverters now incorporate the latest opti-cool system to ensure higher performance
under heavy loads.
Additional SMA equipment is available for remote system monitoring via GSM or internet. Hybrid
and Island grid configurations can be designed around the SMA Sunny Island battery charge
controller.

All inverters can be set as AC110V/120V/220V/230V single phase and 50Hz/60Hz output.
Only 5kw, 10kw, 20kw can be supplied with AC380V, three phase output inverters.
Three phase options
For ON grid configurations requiring a three phase output it is advised to
use one SMA inverter for each phase (three inverters) For OFF grid, battery
charging systems Joliet Technology can supply a single to three phase
converter configured to client requirements.

On grid inverters (SMA) can be supplied to conform to local grid


operators requirements in most countries.
Please refer to detailed installation and user information supplied with SMA inverters.

Installation Guyed tower


Please read this manual thoroughly before beginning assembly. If you have any questions
on proper installation or usage please call either Joliet Technology technical help desk or your dealer for
more information.
Safety is the most important consideration to take into account when installing a tower
and wind turbine.
It is very important to remember that any wind turbine has high speed spinning parts and can be very
dangerous if not installed properly! Make sure that all bolted connections are tight and the guy wire
anchors are suitable for your soil conditions. All of these elements are explained in further detail later in
this manual.
Important! Choose a very calm day to do your installation.

Site Selection
Site selection is the most important factor affecting the performance of your wind turbine!
In almost all locations the wind speed increases, as you get higher off the ground. This is why the taller
the tower the better. As a rule, the turbine should be mounted as high in the air and as far away from
obstructions as is possible.
To find the best location to erect your tower and wind turbine, study the area available and take note
of how the prevailing (most common) winds blow through it. If there are trees, buildings, hills or other
obstructions take note of how high they are and where they are in relation to the prevailing wind
direction and your proposed tower location. The best site for your tower and turbine will be upwind and
above any obstructions which may exist. If there are houses or trees in the surrounding area it is best to
mount the turbine at least twice as high as any obstruction in the area. If the turbine is to be mounted at
the crest of a hill or on a beach where winds come from across the water, a lower tower may be
acceptable.
The next consideration in siting your tower and turbine is the distance from the turbine to your batteries.
The shortest distance will require the least amount of wire and reduce the amount of power lost through
the wiring. If a long distance is required between your tower and the batteries it will be necessary to use
heavy gage wire to reduce the resistance of the wire.
Since the resistance of the wire is directly proportional to its length, making the run shorter will
dramatically reduce the amount of power lost in the wires. The person laying out your power system
should be aware of these considerations when the system is in the planning stages.

NEVER INSTALL A TOWER WHERE IT COULD CONTACT POWERLINES IN ANY DIRECTION.

Determine Location for Tower Base


Select a location for the tower base, and determine the direction in which the tower will lower and
raise. If you will be using a vehicle to raise the tower, clear a path for the lift line from the lift anchor to
the vehicle. A swivel pulley will be installed at the lift anchor, between the tower base and the vehicle.
Mark the ground locations for the base and anchors.
This tower kit is designed for installation on a flat surface. If you have a location that is on an incline or
side of a hill you will need to have a local certified engineer review your installation.
When your tower is being installed on an incline you must make sure that the side anchors and base
anchor are level. The front and back anchors must be directly up and down slope with the gin pole on
the downhill section. This will help raise the tower since the turbine will be resting uphill. Make sure the
anchor points and base anchor are in line when sighted from anchor to anchor. This will ensure the
forces on the guy wires are balanced properly.

Concrete foundations for the central base and anchor points


Following the layout illustrated above, dig the foundation holes. Please refer to the chart above for the
size of the holes according to the mast type and the turbine size you have chosen.
Buried concrete anchors will work in any situation other than solid rock. A hole must be dug in the
ground at the desired anchor point.
C25 concrete should be used and allowed to set fully for 20 days before installation begins. Four anchor
bolts should be installed according to the holes on the base. Make sure that they match up with the
holes in the base. Fix the base into the concrete using bolts (as shown in diagram 2).

Remember to install a conduit in the central base foundation to run cables.

Annular anchors need to be set 60to 80along the base direction, check the distance between the
four anchor hooks and the center of the base. The four anchors should be horizontal (as shown in
diagram 3).

Diagram 3

Tower assembly
Insert the main section of tower into the base, then insert the axis pin or bolt into the base and tighten.
Connect each section of tower one by one and place the tower on the supporting stand after
assembly. Pass a flexible conduit through each tube section for cables.

Fix the guy wires


Cut the cables to approximate lengths and lay out the four cables towards each anchor point. Attach
all four cables to the mast fixing points. Please note that taller towers will have eight cables.

Make sure that the loaded cable is underneath the clamp as shown above.

Attach the two side cables to the side anchors. Attach the rear cable to the rear anchor point.
Allow a small amount of slack in the cables for final adjustment later.
Fit the gin pole and pulley and lay out the guy wires to fix to the front anchor.

Grounding the Tower


It is critically important that the tower be properly grounded or earthed before it is erected. Grounding
will provide static and lightning protection for the turbine, tower, and the rest of your system.
Typically, grounding is accomplished by driving a 1.5mtr ground rod into the earth near the tower base.
A wire is then used to connect the tower base to the ground rod.
Not grounding your system will void your warranty AND can cause damage to your turbine. It is
recommended to ground all guy wires to the same ground rod, especially in high lightning-strike areas.

Trial raising the Tower


It is recommended to trial raise the complete tower prior to fitting the turbine. This allows any final
adjustments and tensioning to be carried out before the final raising of the wind turbine.
Fix the two thin wire cables on the two lugs of the gin pole, by running them through the two lugs, and
attach them to the pole after putting them through the upper pulley.
Insert the supporting pole into the tower. The wire guy cable on the two tower sides should be fixed on
the two side anchors, and then tightened up.

Fix the lower pulley on the front anchor. Fix one side of the longest thin wire cable on the pulley of the
supporting pole. Make sure the other side runs through the pulley, and then runs through the upper and
lower pulley. Finally, attach it to a hoist or tractor (as shown in diagram Small units by hand 3kW upwards
by tractor or other vehicle)

CAUTION: NEVER STAND NEAR OR UNDER TOWER, GUYS, OR GIN POLE WHEN RAISING OR
LOWERING TOWER

Raise tower slowly - carefully observing the tension in the side guys. If the side guys become taut, stop
lifting and lower the tower and loosen the side guys that are too tight. Repeat if necessary. Excess
tension in side guys due to anchors being lower than base pivot point will collapse the pipe.
Raise tower until nearly vertical but with tension still on lift cable. A second person or the driver can now
catch the lift pole and lower it gently to the ground. Allowing the lift pole to crash to the ground puts a
serious strain on the back guys and other tower components. At the end of this step, the tower should
be vertical.
Check that the length of cable on the backside guy cables is not too slack or too taut. Minor
adjustments can be made with the turnbuckles, but major adjustments should be made by lowering the
tower and adjusting the length of cable through the cable clamps. Also, check that the cable length
on the side guys is correct. Be sure to lower the tower if any major adjustments need to be made.
Fasten the lift pole to the anchor. Using a long level against the side of the tower toward each anchor,
adjust the lower turnbuckles until the tower is plumb at the base. Sighting up the tower, now tighten the
upper turnbuckles until tower is straight. Guy wires should be just tight enough to eliminate sag.
When the tower is vertical and the guy cables are properly tensioned, practice lowering and raising the
tower several times without the turbine installed.
Once you are comfortable lowering and raising your tower, it is time to install the turbine. Lower the
tower pipe so the end is resting on a support stand near the top guy cables (see below). This stand
should hold the end of the tower pipe approximately 1 meter off the ground. You may need several
wood blocks of different heights to support the tower.

Install the turbine to the top of the tower by following the


instructions further on in this manual. Double check the rotor
blades, tail, and tower are properly secured before final
raising of the complete turbine.

The ends of the electrical wires from the wind


turbine should be shorted to prevent the turbine
from spinning while raising the tower.

After the turbine is installed, raise the tower following the same procedure as described in the previous
section.
Secure the gin pole to the anchor and make any final adjustments to the tension in the guy cables with
the turnbuckles.
Follow the instructions later in this manual on how to connect the turbine to the controller.

Turbine assembly and connections

Lift the turbine end of the mast onto a support. Fix the running flange of the turbine to the tower with
bolts. Install the tail assembly (for models up to 2kW) Take care that the generator axis is facing upwards
in order to install the blades, apply a light coating of grease to the turbine shaft.

Install the blade hub and tighten the hub nut with a spring washer. (300W wind turbine has no spring
washer)

It is essential to balance of blades when installing them, this reduces wind noise and badly
balanced blades will cause damage to the wind turbine. Fix the blades without fully tightening
the bolts. Adjust the distance between blades tips to be equal before screwing in all the bolts.
(as shown in diagram 5)

Diagram 5

Make sure: L1=L2=L3 (error allowed: 5mm)


Use a torque wrench spanner to tighten blades bolts 200w - 300w=15Nm1
500w - 1kw - 2kw = 30Nm1 3kw - 5kw -10kw - 20kw = 50Nm1
Note: These values are imperative. If they are not respected, we decline all responsibility for possible
damage to the blades or flange.

After adjusting the distance between the blade tips so they are equal, screw down the bolts according
to the order shown in diagram 6 (300W has three blade bolts, screw them down one by one)

Diagram 6
Fit the nose cone.

(For 3kw wind turbine and above) fix the aviation plug on the generator into the
socket of the dogvane, and then install the dogvane (wind direction sensor).
Special attention should be paid to the location of the dogvane. All five holes
must be opposite each other.

After the turbine is installed, raise the tower following the same procedure as
described in the previous section.
Secure the gin pole to the anchor and make any final adjustments to the tension in the guy cables with
the turnbuckles.
Follow the instructions later in this manual on how to connect the turbine to the controller.

Electrical Connection
Batteries should be placed inside buildings which are dry and at a constant temperature.
Choose a suitable place to install the batteries, inverter and controller.
Connect the batteries in series. Connect the anode of first battery to cathode of the second one to
create a series.
Grease the joints well. Install the fuse on the positive electrode of the battery. The distance of
conducting wire between batteries and controller should be less than 3m.
Please refer to suggested battery capacity for various models (as shown above)
It is advised to install a kill switch for use in case of emergency shut down requirement (severe storm
condition for example)

Wiring options Grid connection

(Special attention to 3kw & above 3kw)


There are two cables connected to the generator head. One is the wind direction signal cable, which
has an aviation plug on the cable head. You need to insert this plug into the socket. The other cable is
for the output of generator power and the controlling signal. There are five lines with three thick wires for
generator output and the other two thin wires for controlling signal, which is classified as positive
electrode and negative one. All should be appropriately connected to the connecting poles at the
back of controller.

The anemoscope
The anemoscope should be installed on a house roof or in an open area on a
separate mast, and must be vertical. One end of the anemoscope cable
should be inserted into the socket under the anemoscope with the other end
inserted into the appropriate socket in the controller.

Controller functions 3kw & above 3kw

In its initial state, the control board will indicate auto and
turn-on. When the wind speed reaches or surpasses 2m/s in
this mode, the wind turbine will track the wind direction
automatically. If the batteries are full or the wind speed is too
strong, the turbine will furl automatically until shutdown.
It is also possible to set the wind direction mode to manual
and adjust the turbines direction by pressing forward or
reverse. When the wind speed is too strong or the batteries
are fully charged, the turbine will not shut down automatically.
When the wind turbine is not required to function, you can press
the shutdown button to switch it off. Then the turbine will
automatically face the wind and shutdown.

The system will continuously check the batteries voltage when the system is in its normal power
generating state. The system will alarm automatically when there is over voltage or under voltage. In
case of over voltage, a shutdown order will be sent out. These are the factory settings: over-voltage
alarm is set on 300V, alarm voltage cancellation 280V and under voltage alarm 210V.

The function of the anemoscope is to check the real time wind speed. The states are working or
non-working. In working mode, the system will automatically face the wind and generate electricity.
There are non-wind and over-wind under non-working state. When under non-wind state, the
system shifts into sleeping state. When in over-wind mode, the system will immediately send out a
furling order. The system will go into shutdown.

Note: the anemoscope should be installed on the 3KW and above 3KW wind turbine systems; otherwise
the system will not operate normally.

Maintenance
Wind turbines may be operated under extremely harsh conditions, or encounter various types of bad
weather. Therefore, examination at set dates and maintenance are necessary in order to keep the
system operating properly.
Before a severe storm, it is advised to lower the tower in order to avoid possible damage or loss.

Maintenance monthly
CHECK MECHANICAL CONDITION
WATCH AND LISTEN FROM THE TOWER BASE. Use binoculars. There should be no mechanical noise,
rattle or vibration. The propeller and tail must not wobble. Lower or climb the tower for inspection, if
indicated. There should be no buzzing either heard or felt with your hand on the tower mast.
INSPECT THE TOWER
Follow all inspection and maintenance requirements of the tower manufacturer. Tighten all nuts and
bolts, especially wire clips. Check for cracks and bent or broken parts at the anchors and base
structure. Check for broken strands and tighten guys.
CHECK THE TURBINE CABLES
Normal use of a wind turbine dictates that the turbine head will turn through 360 degrees from time to
time. Check that the cables from the turbine do not become excessively twisted.
CHECK THE BATTERY
Add only distilled water if needed. (Consult your battery manufacturer.)
Tighten battery connections. Remove corrosion and protect terminals. Wipe tops with baking soda
solution.

Maintenance yearly
LOWER TOWER AND GIVE WIND GENERATOR A COMPLETE MECHANICAL CHECK. FIX OR REPLACE ANY
WORN OR LOOSE PARTS.
1. Check tightness of all tower mounting nuts and bolts and propeller mounting bolts.
2. Check all bearings. Just perceptible play is acceptable.
3. Clean the propeller with mild detergent to remove all dirt and debris. Avoid scratching the surface.
Replace blades if they are cracked or damaged.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS


Why doesnt my wind turbine work after being connected to the inverter?
Check the charge being generated. If there is not enough power being supplied, the system will not
operate normally; if there is enough power, please check that the connecting wires between batteries
and inverter are correctly installed.
Why will the batteries not charge?
Check whether or not the rotor is turning, the generator has no output at too high or too low wind
speed. If the rotor is normal, disconnect the generator's wire from the batteries and controller (if there is
an individual controller); check the output voltage of generator by a multi-meter. If the voltage is
normal please check the batteries are ok, otherwise check the wires from the generator.
Why doesnt the rotor turn at a normal wind speed?
If the output wires from generator is shorted, the rotor will not turn. Check the generator wires after
disconnecting it from batteries.
Wind turbine (3kw & above 3kw) can not track wind direction automatically.
Check whether the anemoscope is functioning. The simple way is to examine whether the wind-speed
indicator on the controller is working;
Check whether the dogvane (wind direction monitor) is working correctly.
If both are working correctly, check that the controller board has been set on auto. If not, it cannot
track the wind direction automatically. If you cannot track the wind direction, the reason for this is
generally insufficient wind speed. Only when the wind speed is greater than 3m/s and sustained for
more than 30 seconds, can you track wind speed and change windward angle.
How long is the generator's lifespan?
It is 15 years under normal care. The guarantee of turbine and controller is 2 years, and the inverter is 6
months from the date of purchase.

Safety is the most important consideration to take into account when installing a tower and
wind turbine. All electrical connections must be made by a qualified electrician.

Safety Information
Wind turbines present mechanical, electrical and chemical (battery) hazards that can be life
threatening.
It is your responsibility to obtain all required permits and engineering certifications for your tower and
tower location. Soil and wind conditions vary and towers and tower foundations must be designed for
your specific location.
Tower must not be able to fall on occupied buildings, neighbours property or power lines. Tower
climbing is dangerous and should be attempted only by experienced personnel using proper safety
equipment. A tilt up guyed tower can eliminate climbing. Locate your mounting mast (tower) well away
from occupied buildings and power lines; a minimum of 100m is recommended.
If the generator appears or sounds loose in the tower or is making an unusual sound, the condition must
be corrected immediately. A loose generator or component will soon damage itself further and may fall
from the tower or loose parts that could be lethal. Never stand in line with a spinning propeller.
Provide climbing protection against all unauthorized persons or children. Never allow an untrained
person or someone without the proper safety equipment to climb the tower. Always stop the propeller
before climbing the tower. Both falling from the tower and contact with the spinning propeller can be
lethal.
High voltage systems (that is, systems with battery voltages of 64 volts and above or the primary side of
any system with a transformer) represent a dangerous shock hazard and could be lethal. All high
voltage systems should be wired and maintained by a qualified and licensed electrician.
Batteries may emit explosive and irritating gas while charging. Never turn on a light switch or make any
other electrical connection or light a match or make any type of spark near a recently-charged
battery. Use protective gloves and eyeglasses when working around a battery. Turn off all loads, wear
safety glasses, and look away when making a final battery connection.
NEVER place objects on top or near the inverter or controller. These devices must dissipate heat
as part of normal operation. FAILURE AND FIRE can result if airflow is blocked.
