    Sunny boy inverter for wind?

    I have an old sunnyboy 1700 and I'm trying to connect it to a 1kw wind turbine. I've been told that if I can get into the inverter software to change parameters (mppt) then it may well work. Has anyone any experience of this, or does anyone know where I can obtain a usb cable/interface for the job?
