1347 Posted May 27, 2014 Share Posted May 27, 2014 (edited) I have the following setup: 1 MV Solar array -- fiber optic cable --> MFE --- 2x Ins gold cable --> LV transformer (output 1)----> copper insulated cable --> compressor -> rotary macerator 7500 RPM --> extractor --> 2x Ins gold cable --> Induction Furnace (output 2) ---- 2x Ins gold cable --- copper insulated cable --> electric furnace The problem is that usually when I come to my MFE at a random point in time, I find my MFE to be nearly depleted/empty (after a good amount of time, let's say around 1 Minecraft day). I am looking for a scientific explanation as to why this is happening. This is odd, especially because the two other players in the server have no MFE problems like I am having. I have tried to figure it out using the following information (assuming my data and calculations are correct): 1 second = 20 MC ticks 1 Minecraft day (dusk+night+dawn) = 10 minutes = 10*60s = 600s*20 = 12000t probability of rain = don't know copper insulated cable EU/tick loss = around 1 EU/t 2xIns gold cable EU/tick loss = around 1 EU/t Constantly on: -rotary macerator at 7500 RPM -> 3 EU/t -Induction furnace 100% heat -> 1 EU/t -MFE: 128 EU/t output -MV Solar Array: 64 EU/t output Calculation: Machines and cables: 128 EU/t + 3 EU/t + 1 EU/t + 1 EU/t + 1 EU/t <-> 134 EU/t Loss of EU per tick = 134 EU/t - 64 EU/t = 70 EU/t Loss of EU per night (solar array not operating) = 70 EU/t * 12000t = 840K EU 134EU/64= I need 2.09 (3) MV solar arrays to keep this energy consumption up without losing energy. Are my calculations incorrect? I don't know why my MFE is almost always nearly empty when I come and check it. Do I need more MV solar arrays? If anyone could explain this to me I would be thankful. Thank you. Edited May 27, 2014 by 1347 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
