SMA Windy Boy: Grid Tie Wind Turbines


SMA is known for its world class grid tie inverters for solar panels and is a very popular inverter that is trusted on many solar electric systems around the world. SMA Windy Boy product line offers a solution to grid tie small scale wind generators from their 700u model that can handle wind turbines that are rated a couple hundred watts to the Windy Boy 7000US which is the highest capacity grid tie wind power inverter offered by SMA.

The SMA Windy Boy runs on the same technology as its sister inverter the SMA Sunny Boy, there is a special version of software on the Windy Boy’s Central Processing Unit (CPU) that allows the Windy Boy to be compatible with a wind turbine. The neat aspect of grid tie inverters is they use the grid as a battery, therefore it greatly simplifies the installation process, reduces overall maintenance, and reduces costs of installing wind or solar panels. The Windy Boy is UL certified and has a five year warranty, the Windy Boy is completely modular meaning you can scale a wind power system’s capacity up as your budget increases in the future.
