Oy! So I have purchased a 130V 10amp generator and am curious as to the next step. I can't really find a charge controller or invert, yet I also don't really know where to look. Also if my generator is 130 volt does just my charge controller have to be rated at 130 watts or should my inverter be as well(or just how many watts of batter). Thank you, all help is appreciated because I could use it all

Oy vay! You certainly need to get that 130V down somehow to whatever voltage your battery bank will be. Once its converted down, then you would use a normal inverter, perhaps a 24V one.

Does that generator put out AC or DC?

That's an unusually high DC voltage.

So then what you need is a DC-DC converter, and you would probably need a custom made one since that's an unusual voltage.

Have you checked what voltage it puts out at lower RPM?

E.g. it may be 130V at 3000rpm, which means 26V at 600 rpm, which may be ideal for you. You need to rig a rpm counter somehow to test this. Even if its just counting how many time you turn it by hand in say 10sec.
