Question by Sunrise Coast Video: Why does my wind turbine generator pulse instead of spinning smoothly?
I have (2) wind generators on a caye and they spin and then stall. It seems to hit velocity and then pauses/stalls every 15 seconds. One it’s annoying and two it probably is not producing the max output DC current, too.

I would check the specs on those generators. You might have hit a cut-off point for the angular velocity of the generators. Check what type of angular velocities you are obtaining through your gearing and see how it matches up with your generator’s specs. A generator shouldn’t stall if operated inside its specifications. If you have 2 of them doing the same thing, then theres obviously something wrong with your choice in generator (this is all assuming your wind energy system is operating within a small range of RPMs).
