VariantsPower Generator

The Power Generator II is direct upgrade from the Power Generator machine. It can accept up to six times the input Mechanical Power while outputting up to eight times the output Electricity, equating to a 33% efficiency increase at maximum load. Physically it is the same size laterally as its predecessor, but is 3.5 times larger longitudinally, which may necessitate redesign of power plant layouts to accommodate it.

Output Fluctuation

Electricity production is automatically scaled based on current demand.

If the charge of the connected shaft goes down to 25% or less of its capacity, Electricity production also goes down. And if the charge of the shaft goes down to 10% or less, the generator will stop temporarily.

If 0.1 < Charge of shaft / Capacity of shaft < 0.25:
Actual Production = Production in Recipe × [(17/3) × (Charge of shaft / Capacity of shaft) − 5/12]
