Re: Steam Turbines not working : (. by Serenity » Sun May 26,

Sounds like a noob question to ask, but can I use the steam turbines for the steam engines instead of nuclear power, even though researched tech?.Mar 13, 2023 · Turbines consume steam and output electricity. Space Exploration adds the Condenser Turbine and the High-Temperature Turbine Generator. The Condenser Turbine is similar in function to the Steam Turbine. However, rather than consuming 500 C at 60 steam / second, it instead consumes 80 steam / second while outputting the same amount of power. Hi All, I'm a new Factorio player! I've been stuck on the third stage of the tutorial with a weird issue. My offshore pump is connected to 1 boiler. It was working and powering everything... then all of a sudden, the boiler says "No input fluid." The pump still says it's working though the pumping speed is 0. I've found nothing relevant online ...One offshore pump produces 1200 water/s and a turbine consumes 60 steam/s. So 1 pump, 12 heat exchangers and 20 turbines work very well. For large scale plants with a long double row of reactors you can place these in a single row One heat exchanger consumes 10MW. That tells you the reactor : exchanger ratio.The steam turbine consumes steam to create electric energy. It is usually used together with heat exchangers and a nuclear reactor.. While designed for the 500°C steam of a nuclear reactor, turbines can still be connected to boilers for use in conventional 165°C steam power. At this mode, the steam turbine acts equal to two separate steam …Sounds like a noob question to ask, but can I use the steam turbines for the steam engines instead of nuclear power, even though researched tech?. Inloggen Winkel Startpagina Ontdekkingswachtrij Verlanglijst Puntenwinkel Nieuws StatistiekenThe same wording was used by the boiler back in factorio 0.15 when it had 50% efficiency, u had to input 3.6mw for 1.8mw of steam. And similar wording is with reactors. 10mw is the absolute cap of the building. Some mods change energy rules. Vanilla rule is 200J per 1C of steam above 15C. This means 60 units of 500C is ( (500-15) * 60 * 200J ...Originally posted by knighttemplar1960: You are getting into messy math territory. Boilers use carbon based fuel to produce 60 steam per second at a temperature of 165 C. 2 steam engines use up exactly 1 boiler's worth of 165 C steam (30 steam per second each) to produce 900 kw each. Turbines use 60 units of 500 C steam (produced …A few friends and I are loving the space exploration mod. I am trying to use the energy beam emitters to power our bases but I am running into problems getting these high temperature turbines to run at all. I have tried with and without condenser turbines and what seems like every possible input/output scheme but they just will not run, even ...One nuclear reactor can only support 4 heat exchangers. maybe it's not connected to the network. check your power poles. then it's probably the temperature. heat exchangers start working only when temp reaches 500C. It's not connected to the rest of your power network. Read the tool tip on the reactor.The temperature mechanic, like many other mechanics in factorio is not at all "legacy" it is future-proof as it enables modders (e.g. me! ... IMO it would be much more convenient if both Steam Engines and Steam Turbines could extract the power from steam but at a different rates. There might be some limitations for sure but not as it is now.Related Topics. If your total power demand is lower than all of your turbine's max output, your turbines will produce less than your max. Turbines, steam engines and solar panels (when not being fed into accumulators) will only produce enough power to match demand. Its also worth mentioning that the two reactors will be needlessly eating ...Reading the content of the top-right chest and connecting it with the power-switch will let you connect the power to your steam engines when the power in the accumulator drops to 20% and disconnect the switch when the power hit 100%. (obviusly you can use any % of power and any item in the chest).Accumulators can be connected to the circuit network. They send a signal of your choosing, by default 'A'. This signal represents the percentage of power left in the accumulator. In this way you can use a power switch to read when the accumulator falls below a certain % (in my case 30%) before turning on your steam engines. The game seems to ...I've just started playing with Space Exploration after having one playthrough in the base game, and I am looking for a simple ratio calculator that is an in-game mod. I've tried out FNEI and Helmod and to my taste, they are overcomplicated, at least for the beginning of the game. The best thing I've found is Ogg's Factorio Ratio Calculator ...Yeah, the 5000 degree steam is for later generators. For now, you can set the electric boilers to produce 500 degree steam, and do what you planned. Store a bunch of steam in tanks connected to a big array of turbines to power the umbrella. This is how I defend against CMEs as well. Make steam generator (s). nuarbnellaffej Aug 13, 2016 @ 11:42pm. Steam engines' power output really low. Hey quick question guys, I'm still early in my first game, and my main factory has 4 steam engines, but for some reason they all have really low outputs. The water supplies are 10, 9.9, 9.9, and 9.8. I have 3-4 boilers per engine kept supplied with coal.200 pipe tiles would limit throughput to 1000/s. Yes, just a 20% increase in fluid throughput decreases the max pipeline length (without pumps) by 10x. Pipes have a throughput of 1000/s up to a distance of 200 tiles. If you use underground pipes at every oportunity the max distance increases up to 1100 tiles.That's not true at all. Turbines only consume 60 units of steam per second, which means that on 165C steam, they can only generate 1.8MW of power. You need to use nuclear power/heat exchangers with steam turbines to get anything approaching max efficiency. Steam turbines are meant to use steam at 500°.Since there is 0 power being consumed, one of two things is true: Your base is being fully powered by solar energy, in which case the steam turbines shut off or. You have not connected this power station to your base. Easiest thing is to check the map and turn off everything but electric connections. Make sure the blue line is fully connected ...Yes. Steam turbines consume up to 60 water/sec and have a maximum energy rate that accepts 500 degree water. If the water is colder it will not use the turbine's full capacity. If the water is hotter it will max out the turbine at a lower water consumption. Sure it works, you can line up 1 boiler:1 turbine. This means that you would ideally put 2 steam engines directly on the steam output of the boiler (well, the second is on the output of the first engine obviously). A third steam engine means you need to get a second boiler as well for it. Yes, steam engines, sorry! (I have the game in my native language and didn't know what they were called in ...Related Topics. The ratio is 1 offshore pump to 20 boilers to 40 steam engines. You can figure this out by looking at the fluid production and consumption rates - one offshore pump creates 1200 water/second, one boiler consumes 60 water and produces 60 steam a second, and one steam engine consumes 30 water a second to produce electricity.Factorio physics (tm) don't allow Steam to condense, so a tank of steam is a tank of steam until the steam is used up. Using an array of pump-connected steam tanks (normal liquid storage tanks, used for oil, water, gas, etc), you can store the heated output of your nuclear powered boilers, and use that to drive your turbines to create power.Sounds like a noob question to ask, but can I use the steam turbines for the steam engines instead of nuclear power, even though researched tech?. Iniciar sesión Tienda Inicio Lista de descubrimientos Lista de deseados Tienda de puntos Noticias EstadísticasThat's not true at all. Turbines only consume 60 units of steam per second, which means that on 165C steam, they can only generate 1.8MW of power. You need to use nuclear power/heat exchangers with steam turbines to get anything approaching max efficiency. Steam turbines are meant to use steam at 500°. The controller needs to measure steam being used accurately. That only works if 1 unit of steam is used over 9 ticks, which comes to about 225kW. That is 225kW over what solar panels provide. You don't have to route all your steam through the power controller but the more the better it works. power-control.png.480 MW / 10 MW/heat exchanger = 48 Heat Exchangers to use all that heat. 48 * 103 = 4944 water/sec. Since an Offshore Pump only outputs 1200 water/sec, using 4 will leave you 144 water/sec short, so you need 5 Offshore Pumps. 480 MW / 5.82 MW = 82.47 Steam Turbines; obviously you need to round up again. That’s where Loewchen got his numbers from.Factorio > Ideas & Suggestions > Topic Details. Equestris.

Look at bottom: The heat exchanger is connected to two turbines. It outputs 103/103 steam/s, which is used by two turbines that can consume up to 120 steam/s combined. Steam turbine. The steam turbine consumes steam to create electric energy. It is usually used together with heat exchangers and a nuclear reactor. While designed for the 500°C steam of a nuclear reactor, turbines can still be connected to boilers for use in conventional 165°C steam power.Then, by calculating the total steam produced and dividing it to 60 steam per second, i arrived to a result of (8×103)/60=13.7333 turbines that would produce max power of 5.82MW per turbine. To further elaborate, i kind of wanted my turbines to be at max capacity so i made it 13, but you would need 14 turbines to fully consume the total steam ...All this means that 1 exchanger can support a max of 10MW of power from either 2 turbines at 86% utilization (due to needing 120 steam / sec for 100%), or 11 engines at 101% utilization (which means a few drops of left over steam). TL;DR: Steam is colored hot water. You also don't actually "waste" heat by sticking engines on a heat exchanger ...Can a Steam Turbine work using steam from a boiler? Also, is there any efficiency difference between a Steam engine and a Steam Turbine? My maths, which could very easily be wrong, says a Engine produces 5.4545 KW per degree of heat, and a Turbine produces 4.8KW, but I've read in other posts they produce the same, anyone able to explain the maths behind this to me?The stranded accu powers an inserter arm which feeds a smart chest (a continuious looping flow of items). When the accu empties, the chest is emptied and triggers the steam engines to cycle on (hopefully just before your main bank of accumulators empties out). Adding lights to the stranded accu makes it cycle steam on earlier.Moral of the story, don't use turbines with boilers unless you like wasting a lot of resources. For steam engines, the optimal ratio is 2 steam engines to 1 boiler. The boilers won't waste energy. When electricity demand is low, the fuel in the boiler will last much longer. So having a 1:1 ratio is fine, but the boiler can support 2 engines.Jan 4, 2022 · It takes nuclear power plant to consume one fuel cell each 200 seconds regardless of the heat level. The wiki says it takes ~4.85 of GJ energy to spin from 15 degree to 500 degree and start generating heat at that point. So for a single nuclear power plant without neighbor bonus it would take at least ~121.25 seconds. Well designed Blueprints for every part of an unmodded playthrough? That is the objective of this series of Tutorials "Base-in-a-Book"This series contains tu...Accumulators can be connected to the circuit network. They send a signal of your choosing, by default 'A'. This signal represents the percentage of power left in the accumulator. In this way you can use a power switch to read when the accumulator falls below a certain % (in my case 30%) before turning on your steam engines. The game seems to ...Re: Getting steam turbines to cool down steam? by bobingabout » Tue Aug 01, 2017 1:58 pm. The way steam engines work right now is pretty much based on the old method. Consume water. Test temperature. Take current temp - starting temp, multiply this number by energy per degree value. Produce this much power.Steam engines adjust their steam consumption and power production based on how much energy you need. If the devices connected to your engines only consume 25% of the power that your engines can produce, your engines will only be running at 25% capacity. That then also means that each engine will only be using 7.5 steam, rather than the normal 30. Let's say I have a bunch of tanks full of steam. If I have my nuclear reactor offline, so no more steam coming, does the steam in the tank will slowly be consumed by the steam turbines if I have a small electricity demand ? Is the steam turbines working in sync with the electricity demand like the steam engines ? (I know it's not the case for the nuclear reactor.) I saw a lot of designs with 2 ...Turbwhine, a mod that makes "Turbines go whoosh instead of chuff chuff" Created by GotLag, Turbwhine does exactly what it says in the title, and it sounds very good. It's designed to differentiate the Steam Turbine from the Steam Engine4 reactors, 48 HX, 61.8 Condenser Turbines. A 2x2 reactor makes 480MW of heat. This supports 48 HX to make 4944 total steam per second. This supports 61.8 Condenser Turbines to make total 359.68MW of power. I would however round DOWN to 60 or 61 condensers so that the plant can operate at 100% load. A single water pump can support many ...You still get the 210% efficiency bonus out of the turbine even if you supply it with nuclear 415 C steam, so it's worth upgrading to the advanced turbine even if you don't have fusion. One advanced turbine consumes as much steam as two standard ones, but generates 4.2 times as much electricity (42 MW). Ah, neat.Extreme Torque Turbines now consume 100 units of 915 deg torque to produce 26.4 MW; Torque Turbines now consume 50 units of 715 deg torque to produce 9.9 MW; Large Turbine Changes. Laplace and Carnot Turbines are now only 90% efficient but can consume the steam from 2 Super or Extreme Heatexchangers; Efficiency can be adjusted in the settingsOne lump of coal is 4MJ. Dividing 4MJ by 1.8MJ/s gives 2.222 or 20/9 seconds. Since each boiler consumes one coal every 20/9 seconds, each boiler needs 9/20 coal lumps every second. Yellow belts can feed 15 coal/s to whatever so dividing 15/ (9/20) gives (15*20)/9 or 300/9 boilers. This reduces to 33 and 1/3 boilers for a single yellow belt ...DanielKotes • 2 yr. ago. Depending on which electric boiler you are talking about, there are some exploits to make it net positive for power (mostly revolving around using efficiency modules to decrease the amount of electricity they require), but in the end its just a funny interaction. The electric boiler isnt meant to be a perpetual motion ...One offshore pump produces 1200 water/s and a turbine consumes 60 steam/s. So 1 pump, 12 heat exchangers and 20 turbines work very well. For large scale plants with a long double row of reactors you can place these in a single row One heat exchanger consumes 10MW. That tells you the reactor : exchanger ratio.Nuclear power in Factorio could be considered as a game changer. It can give you some sort of game-winning strategy especially in the late game. ... an assembly machine, a centrifuge, steam turbines, and of course the nuclear reactor and heat exchanger to do this. And to sustain your factory in a long run, make sure that you have a big enough ...For every heat exchanger add 5 stream turbines. -After unlocking fusion reactor: For every fusion reactor add 20 advanced steam turbine. It's also worth upgrading your nuclear reactor with advanced steam turbine instead of normal steam turbines, this will more than double the power output (advanced steam turbines have 210% efficiency).to get more info on WHY a steam engine doesn't work, hover the mouse over the steam engine. General steam system guild: Offshore pumps provide 60 water/s, and steam engines consume 6 water/s, so a single offshore pump can only feed 10 engines. The exact ratio of boilers to engines you need to keep the temperature maxed is 17/13, and if you do ...If a Turbine running from a boiler creates the same amount of energy as two steam engines running from a single boiler is it advantages to use a single turbine on a single boiler instead of two steam engines on a single boiler? Same power output, so really it's just about the material investment, and whether you're going to switch to nuclear ...theory of wiki.factorio: 2x4 core, 8 reactors, 112 Exchangers, 193 Turbines, 1120MW In practice, I have this: 2x4 core, 8 reactors, 136 Exchangers, 204 Turbines You can add another 12 turbines to the current design, but there is no sense anymore, then even at full 60/60 load there is not enough steam. And for this amount - enough.English page. Steam is a gas created by heating water in a boiler or heat exchanger. After being distributed via pipes, steam can be used to generate electricity via steam engines and steam turbines. Steam is also used in coal liquefaction in oil refineries.Yeah all of the steam turbines add up to about 2.4 GW which is enough. I guess im asking is steam limited in how much can pass per second from turbine to turbine in order to get enough steam to flow through the system. ... Pumps keep the fluid moving in one direction, i.e. to the turbines. Without pumps, factorio will try to keep the pipes and ...At this mode, the steam turbine acts like two separate steam engines, producing 1800 kW and consuming 60 steam/sec. However, actual power production is based on the temperature of the steam, not the building itself. This means that using a steam turbine is no more fuel-efficient than using two steam engines, so it's generally not recommended to ...Nuclear is expensive at first but way cheaper than solar at large scales. Solar is good at small scales in the early game (small amounts of clean power) and massive scales in the super late game (best for UPS). Depends on what you are doing. Speedrunning, stick to coal. Upgrading to anything else will take too much time.Compact Turbines. Boosts throughput for turbines and heat exchangers (regular or bob's) to align with nuclear generators at a 1:1:4 (for 3 neighbor) or 1:1:3 (for 2 neighbor) ratios (reactor : heat exchanger : turbine). This allows for UPS friendly nuclear power setups even in megabases (100+ nuclear reactors).The temperature mechanic, like many other mechanics in factorio is not at all "legacy" it is future-proof as it enables modders (e.g. me! ... IMO it would be much more convenient if both Steam Engines and Steam Turbines could extract the power from steam but at a different rates. There might be some limitations for sure but not as it is now.This mod adds new turbines and usage for super/extreme heated steam. With the full setup you will get up to 112.5 MW of power out of 100 MW heat. Content. 2 years ago. 1.1. 2.20K. Power. source code. Download.However steam turbines run at an awkward 5.8MW, so you can't run two at full power from a single heat exchanger. It's easiest with a common/shared steam supply from all the heat exchangers. For a single reactor, you need 40/5.8 = 6.9 turbines. So connect up 7 turbines to 4 HXs and you're good to go.Change steam turbine priority to primary (to keep steam engines from running) Content Mod category: Content Mods introducing new content into the game. ...

(1 hear exchanger will power 4 steam engines, or 1 boiler will power 1 steam turbine). Let's say I have a bunch of tanks full of steamCheck your power lines. Click on the power poles next to t That's a lie. Engines and turbines will both use any steam they get. 499 degree steam. It might as well all be 100 degree steam. Full storage tank of 100 degree steam gives you 0.42GJ of energy. Full storage tank of 499 degree steam gives you 2.42GJ of energy (granted, you only get 0.75GJ when you use steam engine).Yes, this can be done. Converting the required buffer from GJ to turbines/tanks should be easy enough. But: If you build the suggested turbines and connect them to your grid, they will then show up as Production (instead of Accumulator Charge), but they will not be able to produce continuously, but only as long as there is steam in your tanks. Also, wet-thumb-math tells me you'd need ~90 heat ex Factorio version: 1.1. Downloaded by: 225 users. Adds steam engines and turbines with primary and tertiary priority.
