today i wil be showing you an project i have been working on, for over 3 weeks and its about time i show you.
if you are in patient of reading large amounts of text, this suggestion is not for you. it wil require you to fully read all of it
and base your arguments on this.
it is called the hydrogen generator, an new type of energy production device which includes several high tech applications,
do note this:
1. it is only capable of powering MFE or MFSU storage devices. thus making this mid tier generation
2. it expands some machine and storage devices with an additional part in its GUI.
3. please to not point to denied idea's, this is an personal project from which i believe IC2 may benefit
in the case it does not make it. i might create an add-on
wel, now i have pointed out some notes of what this addition will mean for IC2's machines/storage. but what is it?
basicly it is an upgrade to the already existing generator. an hydrogen generator.
using the purity of water makes it an completely renewable fuel source, but how wil it work?
i have been thinking about one way to create the hydrogen.
1. electrolysis (requiring the electrolyser.)
lets start with the well known electrolysis of water, this is simply using the EU (electricity) to shock the water into 2 elements
the O2 (oxygen) and H2 (hydrogen)
the progres of this electrolysis wil take place inside of the already existing electrolyser, however with an small upgrade requirement.
-recipe- (dont know)
the electrolyser will be re-crafted in an upgraded version (as for block ID isue i suggest an damage value, for example 250:924 where :924 is the damage)
this upgraded version of the electrolyser wil no longer electrolyse water cells, but instead wil take in normal water cells and convert them
into 2 seperate cells (wil require 2 input slots for empty cells) one containing the hydrogen and one containing the oxygen. (empty cells are refunded)
the cost of this progres is high, it wil require an high input of energy for an surplus of energy (from this point minecraft fysics take place)
my initial suggestion shall be that the electrolyzer now known as the (suggestions?) wil use 128 EU.tick (output of an MFE) to convert
water cells into the hydrogen an oxygen cells. (aproximetly 240 seconds for 2 H2 cells and one O2 cell)
now, why does it have an 2 to 1 ratio? it is becouse water is chemicly build like so: H2o (2 hydrogen 1 oxygen)
so, the 240 seconds translate into an power consumption of 30720 EU.
now, thats part one one the suggestion. the creation of fuel.
part 2 wil be the generator. as recipe:
-recipe- (dont know)
the new generator wil only accept hydrogen and oxygen as it fuel, thus making it an hydrogen only reactor.
the GUI wil consist of 3 slots. 2 for the hydrogen and oxygen, and one for the storage items.
this generator wil produce energy like any other generator, use heat to do X (where x is making EU.)
now, i suggest the output of this generator to be 64 EU.tick, this wil require an burn time of 480 seconds to get out EU back, but it does not stop there.
it wil burn an additional 60 seconds to produce 3840 EU of surplus, this wil be the profit of the process.
the water we used wil be lost in this progres and disapear in the air.
this is it.. the future of power. i hope you enjoyed reading this!
give me feedback, in the case this suggestion wil not make it. i wil continue to develop this and might even make my own add-on for this.
thankyou for the time spend reading this,
