This is an unlimited coal fueled generator.
Buildcraft, Industrialcraft 2, Forestry, Equivalent Exchange 2
First of all use an Energy Condenser (EE2) powered by a Collector MK3 (EE2) to produce coal (Glowstone Block is needed because the Collector is light-powered)
Use a Wood Transport Pipe (BC) and Cobblestone Pipes (BC) to
transport the coal to the Generator (IC2) and an Electric Engine
(Forestry) powered by the Generator itself to activate Wood Transport
Pipe. The input pipe must be connected from the bottom of the Generator
to be put in the combustion slot.
Use an Obsidian Transport Pipe 1 block below the inlet pipe
surrounded by walls to recover the overflowed coal from Generator (when
the Generator is full the coal will fall from the bottom). Connect Stone
Transport Pipes (BC) to the Obsidian Transport Pipe to take back the
coal to the Energy Collector.
Connect a LV-Transformer (IC2) to the Generator by wires (3 circles
side) and a MFE (IC2) to the LV-Transformer to store energy, then
connect the MFE output to power up to 5 Electrical Engines at full
power (6th starts but at half speed).
It is enough to power endlessly anything needs up to 4 engines to
work (the 5th is used to extract the coal from the Energy collector by
the Wood Transport Pipe)
Using an Energy Collector at MK3 level produce enough coal to fuel 3
Genertators (maybe 4). To add more Generators to the circuit simply put
them at the side of 1st one and connect the main input pipe nearest
possible to the center one

- & | = Pipes (dots for spacing purposes)
to connect the Obsidian Transport Pipe alternate Stone and
Cobblestone Transport Pipes (can’t be connected togheter) and an Iron
Transport Pipe (BC) as link node
P.S. put the 1st one piece of coal manually inside the generator to start the process or connect a solar panel at the generator line to supply initial power. Using a light sensor (one like the Risugami mod one) to give the needed redstone signal to start engines make this circuit a night supply power for solar-only energy centrals.
It is how to merge 4 mods togheter making something usefull. It is compact too (7x3x4 blocks)
Actually i made all with MC1.2.3 because not all mods are actually ready for 1.2.5. (now only IC2 is missed)
Sometime you can get “Saving chunks” error. It is caused by the
Energy Condenser. You need to switch off the Wood T.P. Engine and remove
the Energy Condenser, the engine and 1st block of connected pipes. Then
rebuild all and restart it. I think sometime the coal be “stuck” in a
connection pipe, but it is a rare situation. Stopping the engine prevent
the crash (usually you have enough time to do that, the crash appear
after the fist engine’s revolution).
