Having read that Simon's problems stemmed from the wedges on his blades being fitted incorrectly also, we had to rethink the whole situation and decided that it is only fair to take the Proven 6 back and give it a chance. Bryan Rendall came out himself to re-erect the turbine and when all the electrical system was re-installed a Proven over voltage protection system was fitted.
Everything was switched back on today and has run very smoothly so far although winds are very light. The noticeable differences are that the blades make very little noise, and that when there are gusts the voltmeter doesn't race up the scale like a car rev counter as it did before. We have been making a steady 1 Kw per hour which is fine in such light winds.
Hopefully life with a turbine will be free from drama from now on, and only good reports will grace these pages. Oh yes, and Thanks to Bryan Rendall and his team for having patience with us throughout.
