My charge controller seems to have gone down.
I woke last night to the genie 'Free-wheeling'..

My manufacturer suggests:
If controller experiences failure, you must short-circuit the wind
generator immediately by crossing out 3 AC wires using a breaker switch to prevent freewheeling.

Connecting all 3 wires?
Is this really what I want to do?
Am I mis-understanding what they're saying?

Voltage test shows power from each leg.
Nothing shown on my controller.
Fuses are good..

Basic info:
3 Phase AC wind genie
Up and running well for 3 years (give or take)

Old in age, not in mind, so
