There was once a nice thread of a person trying to mimick a realistic electric grid in a server. Then, his computer crashed and all his hard work got lost.
Now, I tried to do a similar thing.
Let me present, the RRMEN!
More than 100k cables, 20 substations, 2 cities, 4 factories, 10 power plants and MOAR!
A tiny teaser image:
The New Radeon - 1 NPP. 4x 420EU/t (called kW in-game for realism )
The "Church" substation, providing power to the surrounding homes. It is a 1024 kW HV -> LV substation.
A typical factory substation. The customer is directly connected to the EV (HVDC) network since it is a heavy ironworks factory.
Inside said substation. Note the dual meter for production (using a Steam Turbine and Creosote from the Coke Ovens of the ironworks) and for consumption (when the turbine isn't enough).
(kWh are EU, BTW )
New images will come soon!
Note: You may see 24V, 230V, 15/25kV, 150kV and HVDC signs instead of ULV, LV, MV, HV and EV signs. This is for realism's sake!
Please, leave feedback!
