Simple[st] enrichment control system

Post by EditorRUS » Wed Jun 14, 2017 1:42 am

Multiplayer. 70 hours in, we've only discovered Kovarex enrichment process now.

And we challenged each other to come up with a control system that uses the least amount of components.

And I (sort of) won with this.
Image
Left chest - input. Insert U-238 here. At least one cell must be left for U-235.
Middle chest - buffer. Intermediate step, don't mess around with it.
Bottom chest - output.

Code: Select all

The main idea behind this design is to simply count all U-235 that are being moved by the output stack inserter and when the counter reaches certain value, it causes the filter inserter to move exactly one U-235 from the buffer. The rest are transferred back to the centrifuge through input chest. Plain and simple, yet brutally effective.

This, in a sense, is the same as having a 1-to-41 balancer and merging 40 out of 41 outputs. Yes, even though I won with this design, it's not the simplest one that was created. There was another design that used just one wire, but it wasn't really stable and also pretty slow. It was my turn to come up with an even simpler design and I resorted to no combinatorics at all. That is, the splitter based one. It doesn't even need combinatorics. But the size of this thing... it should come as no surprise why we decided to not go any deeper.

And what you say on some ideas in here?

Be careful with "the simplest" statement anyway :D . However, you can use "simple" as much as you can ;)

Kudos. Simple is good. This design is really tight and practical it's no wonder others have come to it/similar.

There is an even simpler solution based on reading u238 output as a pulse trigger to remove 1 u235. No chests required.

Yes. I saw Dave McW managed a simpler system. Guy's a freaking legend.
