Can XW MPPT60 be used for WIND or HYDRO?

 Can XW MPPT60 be used for WIND or HYDRO?


Wind : No. This is because the wind turbine must have a continuous load to keep it from "free-spinning", eventually causing bearings to overheat. 
Using the C-series configured for diversion mode will provide this continuous load.

Hydro : Yes....PROVIDED the input voltage at the PV terminal is at least 5VDC higher than the target battery voltage for BULK. Be sure to set REFERENCE 
voltage lower than LBCO of inverter.
