ok so i have an idea but am having problems getting schematics. for starters as i am a hobbyist the design is for a 12volt system. i am hoping to get a tri-power system. I want a 12volt deepcycle battery- which will be charged via a solar panel or mains but this will be controlled via a switch, i will use a secondary solar panel/ wind generator and lastly a 12volt transformer running of our 240volt mains powers, am hoping to run this into a transformer which i can use to select voltages in 1.5volts steps up to 12volts so i can run experiments. I think i have bitten of more than i can chew with desigining it but with luck i will be able to have a good setup that will not raise my electricity bill as i experiment.
oh last thing fuses and lights
need fuses for safety and lights so i can see what power source is being used, hopefully a meter to read power output from solar and wind gen, and power meter to see how full the battery is. i was thinking of trial and error on the 12volt systems which is ok, but the switching and 240v-12v systems are a little beyond my capabilities

got an old car alternator to help charge but getting it to turn via a windmill is impossible.
