The BPE-14 TURBO ALTERNATOR was designed to be installed on most classic, antique and home built aircraft without an electrical system.
This is a new design of the old Wind Generator, using the newest in technology techniques and materials. Particular effort was made to optimize the power output (6 amps at 85 mph), with size (5" in diameter), and weight (5 pounds).
STC'd for several aircraft, the unit contains the Turbo Alternator with built-in regulator, and installation kit. A battery is not needed but the Turbo alternator will only produce current while flying.

The current of the alternator is almost proportional to the airspeed/10, i.e. at 70mph, the current is about 6-7 amps, and at 100mph, the output is about 10 amps. The regulator controls the voltage at 13-14 Vdc and the current is proportional to airspeed.
