If I wanted to build a wind mill to generate power, what kind of inverter
would it use to supply power back into the house grid? Doesn't it need some
kind of synchronized inverter or something?

Yes, you need to generate 120VAC /60Hz under 5% THD power for the power
company to like you. There are a number of commercial outfits already doing
this.

Kind regards,
Tim

Hi Martin;

There is a huge amount of accurate info at http://www.homepower.com/hp/
You may opt not to reinvent the wheel by making a windmill there are a lot
of mills available at reas. $. I have an air 303 which produces about half
of my winter power needs. Trace makes an inverter which is synchronized to
the power grid and approved. I don't think the economics are there for this
plan yet but you are doing the right thing by reducing greenhouse gasses et
al.

I am using PICs in my fridge controller and several other parts of my
renewable energy system. Next project is a pic controlled solar tracker,
and I'm open to ideas that would simplify the design. Often working in a
vacuum does not produce the simplest design. Any suggestions would be
appreciated. Mail me off the list if possible.

Hope this helps

It would not just need to be synchornized, it would have to be a type
approved by the electricity company. This means, that they, and not you
choose, in practice. There is a magazine called 'Solar Power' or such that
covers these issues.
