I've been toying around with IndustrialCraft² for roughly a month now and am enjoying it thoroughly (I much prefer machines over alchemy). I'm at a stage now where I'm feeding 2 MFSUs from my nuclear reactors and am pondering how to merge both their outputs into a high voltage (512EU/t) line, which will then be feed to my branches of machines.
I encountered something a little strange and am unsure why it is. It seems that only 1 MFSU is being used to draw power, despite both being connected in what I thought was correct. I toyed around with several arrangements of cables, cable types, and HV transformers and still only 1 was being used.
Below I've got a screenshot of what I've currently got setup (hopefully not too comedic!). I've 90EU/t coming out of the ground and is being split into an even 45EU/t into the MFSUs. They are then connected to a HV transformer (receiving redstone,as pictured), which is connected to another HV transformer (their 3 dots are touching!), and that goes out, onto my machines.
I'm not sure if I've got the HV transformers connected correctly, or if they're even needed in the first place! After taking the screenshot I wired up a Mass Fabricator, as it was running I checked its power usage: ~1020EU/t! This left me a little baffled, as it's stated maximum input is 512EU/t.
I would love to know on the "correct" method for combining multiple MFSU power outputs into one 512EU/t line, and why only 1 MFSU was being drained. As well as any suggestions to what I'm currently doing. Thanks
