Steve From Marketing Posted September 27, 2013 Share Posted September 27, 2013 Please re-read threat title. It's fission, not fusion. So please do not spam this thread with comments as to how superior fusion reactor's are, thank you. Hello all, Steve here again. I'm having some doubts about setting up my first fission reactor. Also it is very hard to find any useful up-to-date information as most discussions seems to lean towards fusion power. So far I have managed to set up a working fission reactor and fissile material production. My questions are more about turbine setup/layout. Take a 5x5 of water and put a fission reactor in the middle of it and it will heat up the 5x5 -1 block of water around it. So I have room for 24 little turbines above the boiling blocks of water. When I examine the reactor it seems to max out at 10,0 Steam per second. How much steam does it take to power a turbine or how much steam does a turbine consume? How much power does a single little turbine produce? How about the large steam turbine (3x3 small ones, click wrench thing)? How do I measure these metrics? Steam funnels, I noticed I can use a liquiduct to pipe the steam around. Does it matter how many steam funnels I stack before I connect my liquiduct on the top steam funnel? Do I have to connect the liquiduct to the top one? Does it matter? Afaik steam funnels only stack upways/upwards. I tested and I noticed I can use a single boiling block of water, steam funnels and liquiducts to power atleast 12 large steam turbines at maximum speed by the look of the blades spinning. And "Breeder reactors". To my understanding this involes 5 fission reactors where the middle one has a spent fissile rod and the 4 fission reactors around it have breeder rods and these breeder rods "refuel" or "reinrich" (?) the spent fissile rod? Is this correct? Can I use this breeder reactor to also create steam? Also some of the data in the fission reactor screen. What do they mean: -toxicity (dm3) -temperature (It seems to be different than what my thermometers displays) -steam emission: x,yz/second (Amount of steam the reactor generates per block or total?) -time left: 1234 seconds 12345 (First is time, second is ?)
