Compression Dynamo


The Compression Dynamo is one of the Dynamos added by Thermal Expansion. It generates Redstone Flux using fluid fuel and coolant.

Operation

The Compression Dynamo generates energy using fluid fuel and coolant. It does not work if there is fuel but not coolant in its internal tanks, and vice versa; the Dynamo essentially consumes two kinds of 'fuel' simultaneously.

Power

The Compression Dynamo generates energy at a maximum rate of 80 RF per tick. This rate may decrease depending on how full the Dynamo's internal storage is, which can fill up if the Dynamo cannot emit its energy. The rate may be reduced down to a minimum of 8 RF per tick. At this point, generated energy that cannot be stored anywhere is lost.

Installing the Excitation Field Limiter Augment removes this lower limit, allowing the Dynamo to automatically stop generating energy completely if needed.

Input/Output

Energy generated by the Compression Dynamo is stored in the Dynamo's internal energy storage. It is then emitted as soon as possible in the direction in which the Dynamo's red coil is pointing. The Dynamo does not emit energy if it is inactive, even if some generated energy is still stored in it.

The Dynamo accepts fluids that count as fuel or coolant from external sources like Machines or Ducts. These can be inserted on all sides of the Dynamo, except for the coil. However, if the Transmission Coil Ducting Augment is installed, that side may also receive them.

Fuels

The below table lists the fluids that can be used as fuel for the Compression Dynamo. It displays how much energy the Dynamo can generate from a Bucket (1000 mB) of each kind of fuel. Fluids that yield less energy are consumed more quickly.

Fuel Energy
Liquifacted Coal 1000000 RF
BioFuel 500000 RF
Oil 150000 RF
Fuel 1500000 RF
Ethanol 500000 RF

All energy amounts can be changed in the config. More fluids to treat as fuel can also be added in it.

Coolants

The below table lists the fluids that can be used as coolant for the Compression Dynamo. It displays how long a Bucket (1000 mB) of each coolant lasts, expressed in the amounts of energy the Dynamo can generate with them. These energy amounts are not added to the amounts of energy generated using the above fuels.

Coolant Energy
Water 400000 RF
Gelid Cryotheum 4000000 RF

All energy amounts can be changed in the config. More fluids to treat as coolant can also be added in it.
