I have finally gotten some 12 and 24 volts car lights ( https://diysolarforum.com/threads/t...tial-how-to-do-it-in-europa.30488/post-368684 ) in an effort to test what my
TL;DR the 3 phase generator seems to produce 48 volts. so I though I had gathered from earlier advice, to get car lights and hook them up in series. Truth be told @Porch has told me I did not fully grasped yet what he and others tried to explain.

Now since we have these lights there sitting anyway, can we do anything interesting with them in this context?

For example, Shall I do just one phase of the wind alternator to the L pole of the light, hook that one up to the L pole of the second light. Then hook up another phase of the wind turbine alternator similar to before but then on the other pole of the lights?

I indicated in that topic how to connect up the wires.
