• ## 640 EU/t timed reactor, how do I transfer power to my storage?

I intend to run this reactor setup because it is more efficient on the uranium. I don't have intense power needs for burst power and my reactor literally supplements my power grid. I will use a HVT to step down, hope i don't lose any packets

Thanks gents

• ## 640 EU/t timed reactor, how do I transfer power to my storage?

I'm using this reactor design:
http://www.talonfiremage.pwp.b…i=1k101010114010101001019

I'm allowing it to run for 15 seconds, cooling it down inactive for 7 minutes, well within my time frame. My old reactor outputted significantly less EU/t than this one and I left the glass fiber cabling attached to it and let it run for one cycle (15 seconds) Danger!. According to the EU meter i was getting ~640 EU/t on glass fiber cables. Also I thought I read somewhere that reactor output ticks were capped somehow, does this still apply or am I reading too much and remembering too little?

According to the wiki this should not be allowed and it should break them @ above 512 (i'm glad it didn't)

Question 1: Is this one of those "combined" EU packets and not single pulse situations?

If not:
Question 2: How do i get the output of my reactor to storage safely?

Ideally I would use a HV transformer and take it down to 512 Eu/t then input that into a MFS. I just sadly don't know how transformers work that well, do they save the excess energy inside while they are dormant. I would hate to lose all that power because of the cycling effect of my reactor.

Thanks gents!

Thanks guys!

• ## Water/Lava Jacket sphere calculation questions (noob)

So i pieced together a 6 chamber reactor. The chamber itself is a 3x3x3 cube with the reactor chamber extensions filling in the plus sign space. According to the math that leaves me with 20 spaces of "free" area to allow for lava/water. So my question is does the water/lava have to be a complete cube or can it be the entrance flowing animation to be counted. I can hold space in that area and there is still a very very small pocket of air.

Thanks.

• ## Tin cables from solar panels are processing 25 EU/t, is this as designed?

Yeah it was mildly confusing but now i understand. Thanks gents.

• ## Tin cables from solar panels are processing 25 EU/t, is this as designed?

Hello, IC^2 noob here, just started yesterday:
According to the wiki tin cables are only allowed to pass 5 EU/t. i have 5 solar panel flowers all with tin cables transferring to a single tin cable that goes down to my array of EU storage devices.

EU-reader (which i read is currently bugged...) states on the output of the solar panels is 5 EU/t (5 panels) but the combined cable is 25 EU/t.

Question: aren't the cables suppose to melt if above rated capacity? If this is per design, can the wiki be changed by someone in the know?
