Hi Gill,

If you already have obtained a match between the blades, the generator and the load, then adding capacitors may reduce output. I suspect this may be the case for hydro, or a vegy diesel, but I doubt this would be the case for a windmill. If you already had achieved maximum power across a wide wind power range, you would not need to build an electronic MPPT. .. .. Gordon.
