Hi Phil, I have the same motor you do and have tried numerous setups with reasonable success. Regarding your first question on wiring: Although Delta layouts show two capacitors – one between Pole 1 and Pole 2, and another between Pole 2 and Pole 3. The Pole 2 was used as Neutral running to Grd. I did not have good generation from it. Also after trying the midpoint between Pole 1 and Pole 2 as the Neutral and grounding it, Pole 3 voltage doubled. My best results are actually a Y layout with 3 capacitors. Take your 3 lines from the poles and put two wires with spade connectors on each. Line 1 wires connect to Cap1 & Cap 2. Line 2 wires connect to Cap 1 & Cap 3. Line 3 wires Connect to Cap 2 and Cap 3. You should be able to pull the full 480v (Pole to Pole or 280v Pole to ground) and around 15 amps with the right capacitors. I’d suggest starting with 40mf per leg to get you in the ballpark. I also use the same layout on the 12 wire Reliance 40hp I’m currently building as a wye generator. Now if someone out there will come up with a Voltage Regulator for Self-Excited Induction Generators, it would make my year!
Hello, First off, thank you for this information. Secondly, I am looking for information/answers about what the best generator would be for uses of “off grid” high wind speed, perferably “direct drive”. Based on your information a PMSG seems like the best option but none of the information including anything about generation at high wind speed (60-80mph) Lastly, what are the main issues/challenges with generatoring electricity at high wind speeds?
Tip speed ratio, turbulence, self destruction due to high tip speed, etc.

Hi. If I wanted to convert a Variable Speed Pitch Regulated Wind turbine into a Fixed Speed Stall Regulated turbine, What main components would need changing and how and why?
Disable the mechanism which adjusts the blades and fix them at the angle you need.
Hello! this is cool! Induction generators use squirrel cage rotors and need excitation to produce a voltage.
[…] An induction generator looks a lot like an induction motor used in industry and it is, the difference is when the machine is rotated faster than its normal operating speed, an induction generator produces AC electricity. The cost per kilowatt (kW) of a single-phase induction generator is generally higher than that of a three-phase generator for the same size per kilowatt of output power. Therefore, three-phase generators, which can also produce a single-phase voltage output, are normally used. […]
