Electrical Brake for Soma Wind Turbines

It is possible to stop a Soma wind generator from turning in the wind by placing a short circuit across the alternator output. This should only be done in light wind speeds to stop the wind generator for servicing, etc. The electrical brake will not stop the wind generator in very strong winds. Any attempt to stop it with the electrical brake in strong winds may result in burning out the alternator windings. If the wind generator has not slowed to less than 20 RPM in less than 1 minute of applying the brake, then it is too windy to attempt to stop the machine and the brake must be released. The electrical brake can be factory fitted as an optional extra.

Once the wind generator has stopped the brake will prevent it from starting again even in strong winds.
