Iskra 5kW
by Colin at 2007-09-22 00:59:39 (Forum::Public::Wind)
Do any of you have an Iskra 5kW turbine?
There is much talk of the Proven 6 (which has very similar energy yield to the Iskra AT5-1) on here. I wondered if any of you had feedback on the Iskra units by way of comparison?

Those of you that have followed this thread since the beginning will know that I had an Iskra wind turbine installed in June 2007 and then had an on-going battle with the manufacturerís distributor, Segen, over a number of issues including noise and efficiency.

Iím glad to say that since I have been dealing with Iskra direct, they have demonstrated great willingness to listen to my concerns and responded quickly. The firm has applied a high level of engineering and scientific skill, and has updated my turbine to their latest production specification - Iím now very happy with the result in both noise and efficiency.

The output from the turbine is excellent and although I am not able to scientifically measure the power being generated it does seem to be impressive, with the cut-in at low wind speeds and a fast upward curve to maximum output. There is no doubt that this is a highly efficient machine.

This pretty much brings to an end the saga of my Iskra wind turbine and I wish all other wind turbine owners the best of luck with theirs.

Cliff,

You might want to consider adding a real time energy display to your turbine - see my article on the blog on this site re. CC128 real time display.

This would allow you to monitor output from your Iskra in real time, as well as maintaining an historic log - including publishing details on the web automatically, if you wished?

Regards,

Great news,

Hope posting on the forum helped.

Please do record you output on our output graph (see the front page) so we can see how the Iskra compares to other turbines around.

Well done again
