HI,
      I fabricated the wind turbine and generator of 1 kW. Now i want to measure the performance of my turbine. Kindly give some suggestion, circuit diagrams and equipment required to do this.

You haven't provided enough details of what you want.  I use a number of these in my solar system.  Current is sensed in the negative lead.  It says 100A but O wouldn't put more than 20A through it.     I connect black leads to an external current shunt. Add extra black wire so 10A reads 1A.  Only one red wire needs to be connected.  An external jack on the side allows unit to keep powered and keep data when wind doesn't blow.
