Poptarticus86 Posted February 26, 2013 Share Posted February 26, 2013 UPDATE: This is now the 1.99 Megawatt (1990 Kilowatt) Single Core Fusion Reactor! Worldfile with howto is here : http://puu.sh/29Vf7 ... ------------------------------------------------OLD--------------------------------------------------------- Same concept as the typical 3x3 single core reactor, only with 4 cores. Included are 8 deuterium extractors that are powered by the same battery box that returns power to the 4 Fusion cores. That amounts to 2 extractors per core, allowing this to infinitely generate its own power. Enough power, in fact, to infinitely power a hadron collider. Tap off a battery box or two to power your base/machines. Screenshots following : This is an overview of the 4 core system. It seems barely stable as little fires flare up inside the fusion tube where the plasma is being produced fast enough by 4 cores to put them out. I can vouch for it though, I've had it running for many refueling cycles without it melting down. This is the power routing. All Advanced Battery Boxes used. Only one (with a 50% voltage downconverter) battery box is required to power the extractors -and- the 4 fusion cores. A logistics wire is used to power an alarm when the reactor is no longer producing current to the batboxes. This is the extractor array. For power integrity I wired an additional batbox (with downconverter) to power the extractors rather than forcing the power to always split, potentially starving the 4 cores. Finally the underbelly. Pretty simple, but added for completion. No funny business down here. Cores are arranged like this : The plasma tunnel as per standard : Infinite coolant water placement as per standard (disregard glass) : All the way around : Fill the middle with water and then arrange the steam turbines like this. Wherever there are no turbines, the water does not heat. These empty corners may be covered if desired. Wire the underside of the 4 cores to a wire leading outside, and wire all of your turbines together (Insulated silver wire shown): Wire up your batboxes. Maximum number of batboxes sustainable with this setup has not been tested. Don't forget your voltage downconverter in the batbox wired up to the fusion cores! The advanced battery boxes crank out 240V and the cores accept 120V, omitting either the downconverter upgrade in the batbox or a step-down 120V transformer will explode 1 or more of your fusion cores! This is where you add the deuterium cells... HOWEVER! This was the first time I used insulated silver wire for this setup. There was too much resistance in the wire and not enough power was reaching the cores to self-sustain. Superconductor wires MUST be used for this setup. Completed product as seen in the first screenshots. I will not bother a step by step for setting up the extractors or the collider, those are well-known and searchable by now. Hope you guys like!
