Re: Why big output buffer in Furnaces?

Because in the early game, you can setup furnaces to smelt without electricity, using burner miners and burner inserters. It would be incredibly inconvenient that they would only stack to 4 or 5 in the furnaces, meaning you would have to keep emptying them very regularly. 1. player can feed outgoin...

I have this setup of nuclear reactors and steam engines your setup is very sub optimal (well, inefficient). I can recommend my polished power plant The Perfect Clover-leaf. https://forums.factorio.com/viewtopic.php?f=208&t=96233 which also contain tips and tricks so you might see why and how. T...

Re: Autobreaker for preventing brownouts and controlling backup power

No, all Nuclears which read level of steam (wasteless) are sensitive to steam overspend. If you add more steam tanks and/or heat exchangers beyond that minimum, the sensitivity is alleviated. It also doesn't exist in plants where it is impossible to add more turbines due to the physical configurati...

Re: Autobreaker for preventing brownouts and controlling backup power

use case is completely different from my autobreaker, and your build assumes the existence of that specific circuit-controlled nuclear plant, both for its intended purpose, (not all nuclear plants are that sensitive,) and as a source of steam. Yes, steam accumulator assume there source of surplus s...

Re: Autobreaker for preventing brownouts and controlling backup power

I don't know how you're coming up with those criteria, I made them to narrow usage for device. Honestly I didnt understand proper usage of your device neither. ;) Your circuit is just a threshold-triggered version of what powerplants already do by default: throttle up and down based on instantaneou...

Re: Autobreaker for preventing brownouts and controlling backup power

Here is my version of emergency backup power. In the first lets define criteria: 1. Backup peak power build should be cheaper than regular power plant of same capacity. 2. Brownouts could happen so they can be detected then suppressed. 3. When power peak happen and detected then all power producers ...

Re: Autobreaker for preventing brownouts and controlling backup power

"enough accumulators to absorb any spikes in power usage" I dont think this device can do what you promice. Here is an example : lets have a main base producing up to 100MW and average consmption is 80MW. Then laser wall start shooting consming 130MW so energy consumption spikes comes. Bec...

Re: 2x6 tileable Nuclear Reactor 1.76 GW

- If you run a large horizontal orientated layout like this, you will see the steam volume on the east half will come out different to the steam volume on the west half, even if it's all perfectly symmetric. Why do I reccomend to separate the steam system for each dual line of turbines ? Becouse of...

Re: 2x6 tileable Nuclear Reactor 1.76 GW

Wasteless design makes sure that no energy from fuell cell is wasted. e.i. that you insert a new fuell cell only when steam reserve is below certain level. > When you insert new cell, & power consumption switch to zero (pwr plant is disconected) then all energy is stored into heat. e.i. thermal ...

And also there is a discrepancy between the icon and the placed belt: the gear teeth are visible on the icon, but not on the belt. You need to redraw the icon, move the belt image a little lower to hide some of the gear teeth. I agree the discrepancy should be fixed, however I would recommend oppos...

[*]A circuit is testing every 200 ticks whether there is energy demand from the power plant or surplus from the solar panels. During the test, which will take 1-10 ticks, the power plant is temporarily connected and the accumulators are temporarily disconnected. [*]The test is only performed, if ac...

Re: Power controller for mixing solar with steam/nuclear power

I think you over-focus the idea "steam power stored in battery means waste" . I dont agree on this. Lets assume: 4 leaf Nuclear has 480MW max output. (or some coal based plant of same output) Then you add 480/0.3 = 1600 accumulators which can max output 480MW It means, when Nuclear is swit...

Re: Power controller for mixing solar with steam/nuclear power

In your setup you turn on nuclear at 40% charge and that will charge the accumulators by using nuclear power. And you turn nuclear of at 80% charge. That means 40% accumulator storage is bought by fuel. 40% came from somewhere and is never touched (except in an emergency). And only 20% is actually ...
