Generator

Generator.png

Generators are used to either supply direct power to machines or charge RE Batteries. Generators are a must-have to get off to a good start in a new world by supplying power to lower-tier and basic machines.

Fuel Source

The basic Generators operate on conventional fuel, which includes most wooden items, Charcoal, Coal, Coalfuel Cells, Biofuel Cells, certain plants, and Scrap. While costly in terms of fuel, basic generators are also one of the most mobile power sources, and don't suffer the drawbacks of requiring sunlight, water, lava, or proper wind as the case is with the other types of generators.

When wired up to an electric machine the generator will power it and any others until it runs out of power. However if you have Philosopher's Stone, you can craft 1 coal into 4 charcoal which is a lot more effective. Its block ID is 246.

Block Usage

A Generator supplying EU to a BatBox that is subsequently powering a Macerator.
A huge array of over 500 generators can provide over 5000 eu/t with a relatively simple charcoal supply system.

To use, place one of the compatible fuels in the lower slot. The generator will output power at a rate of 10 EU/t. You can also charge RE Batteries by placing them in the top slot. For a fuel to automatically be supplied through a transport pipe into the bottom slot, the pipe must be connected to the bottom side of the Generator.

Recipe

A generator can be crafted from one RE Battery, one Machine Block, and one normal Cobblestone Furnace.

Or from one RE Battery, three Refined Iron, and one Iron Furnace. This recipe calls for the same amount of iron (when the iron furnace is crafted with Cobblestone furnace + 5 iron) but requires that less of it be refined.
