Resistance Dump Load

Also, if a wind turbine uses resistive loads for overspeed control, the resistors have to be outside. During loss of load and high winds at the AEI Wind Test Center, the resistors, which were inside the control shed, along with the controller and inverter, became so hot the control shed caught on fire and burned to the ground. Luckily, the fire burned the insulation off the power wires from the wind turbine, and they shorted together and shut the wind turbine down before it was destroyed.
