As part of a Discovery Canada TV show (Junk Raiders, Season 2 http://www.propertelevision.com/productions.php?showid=8 or http://www.discoverychannel.ca/Showpage.aspx?sid=19241 or http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Junk_Raiders - The new cast is different from those pictures.) I trying to build a Solar and Wind powered light system. I have 4-6A of solar PV panel, and some unknown qty of wind - (the wind turbine is untested, and may not be deployed.) I need to build a charge controller out of the parts that I'm likely to find in computer PSs and perhaps an older TV. (And a new Aqus with a broken screen) I do have a nice dump load, but I'd rather not use it for the solar.
Any good ideas? A schematic and a if possible board lay out would be great.
And yes, I do have a much Karma ID than this, but I had to make a new one for the show to ask the question.

well it would be nice to get some more info on Exactly what you want such as are you charging a battery, if so what voltage and type be it car battery or what not and what are the power requirements of the things you will be powering if you could be more specific and give detailed info I believe I may be able to be more help.
