wind turbine charge controller

Hi, Im setting up my first wind turbine, and I am looking into what kind of charge controller would be best. It was suggested that I use an SCR or silicon controlled rectifier in circuit with an optical sensor to act as an auto in-line switch to break the circuit when voltage is too high, although I haven't found any further information regarding this method. is this method any better than the standard voltage regulator and dump method? are there any  manufactured CCs that one would recommend?

after further research I found the SEA 440 charge controller, as sold here:  has anybody used this and have something to say about it?
