1.0.0 (6 months ago) Factorio version: 1.1. Downloaded by: 434 users. Adds a broken steam turbine, sealed to be used as steam tank perfect for use in nuclear reactor setups.Have your engines turn off when accumulators are at a certain capacity. Use the circuit network to connect an accumulator to your off-shore pump and have the pump turn on when your accumulator is below 30% or so. You can get fancy and leave the pump on until accumulators are back to 50% with some combinators. #1.Originally posted by Alaskan Glitch: The ratio is one water pump will supply a maximum of 20 boilers with water. Each boiler is capable of producing enough 165°C steam for two steam generators. Hence, each water pump can support a maximum of 40 steam generators. Yes, there is also a maximum throughput for water that depends on the distance the ...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 ...The turbines are supposed to work with 500°C steam from heat exchangers to produce the 5.8 MW of the tooltip. If you pump regular 165°C steam they will work as two steam engines combined, producing 1.8 MW. As for pipe pressure, it drops quick over a larger distance. Best is to hook up turbines/engines directly to the steam source.Showing 1 - 13 of 13 comments. Gregorovitch Apr 17, 2016 @ 9:11am. Possible causes are: 1) water not getting from lake to boiler. 2) boilers lacking fuel. 3) water not getting from boiler to steam engine. 4) electricity pole not positioned correctly to next to steam engine. 5) electricity pole not positioned correctly next to powered item.Nuclear Reactors are the things that run flat out regardless of load. Steam Turbines (either for Nuclear or for water heated with boilers) will only activate to meet the power demand. 3. level 1. · 4 yr. ago. also boilers can only provide enough steam for 1 turbine each. they run 2 steam engines per boiler. 1. level 2.Sure it works, you can line up 1 boiler:1 turbine. The turbines are about 2-3x as expensive, but also take up only half the space. Up to you if that's worth it. Note …A steam engine can produce 900kW of energy from the stored steam (3 times faster discharge rate), and a turbine can produce 5800kW (6.4 times faster discharge rate). In other words, a number of turbines or steam engines with steam storage can cope with much higher bursts than the same number of accumulators.Find blueprints for the video game Factorio.

Early game steam power plant; Connected with single middle belt; 40:20:1 ratio, not-space optimal; no underground belts; Can be used as backup power with at ...Boilers: 14 * 103.0927835 steam produced/water consumed -> 1443,298969 i/sec steam/water. Steam Turbines: Divided by boiler consumption 60 i/sec -> 24.0549828167 steam turbines needed. Pipes: 1500 i/s steam or water -> a pump every 7 segments. Undergrouds count as 2 segments)Flat_White_Official • 4 yr. ago. The boilers will only consume fuel at a rate proportional to that at which the steam engines consume steam. The latter depends on your power draw. You will therefore burn the same amount of fuel in either setup, and cause the same amount of pollution. The exception here is a nuclear reactor, which always runs ...How to set up your Kovarex & Nuclear power without circuits!Ratios in this videoSteam Power - 1 Pump - 20 Boilers - 40 Steam TurbinesSolar Power - 21 Accumul...Steam in factorio is magical and never drops in temperature, so can always be used for power generation. ... 300 GJ over 120 seconds every 24ish hours (real time), with a peak energy demand of around 2.5 GW/s. 450 steam turbines can match that energy demand, and 150 full tanks of steam can act as enough reserve to last that 120 second (150 x 2. ...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.Other than this difference, either steam engines or turbines can be used to generate power off of steam from any source. Trivia. The fill meter on steam storage tanks fills from the top instead of from the bottom. Steam is the only non-liquid fluid in Factorio. Steam is the only fluid that cannot be stored in barrels. History. .15.10: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 engines, producing 1800 kW and consuming 60 steam/sec. However, actual power production is based on the temperature of the steam, not ... Re: "Laid back" compact 2x1 -> 2x2 nuclear reactor. by qwr » Tue Dec 28, 2021 9:27 am. Very nice and space compact design which should be able to produce enough energy to handle 100 SPM factories. As you said, the setups "waste" a few turbines (4 turbines for 2x1 reactor setup, 13 for 2x2 reactor setup according to https://wiki.factorio.com ...The turbines are supposed to work with 500°C steam from heat exchangers to produce the 5.8 MW of the tooltip. If you pump regular 165°C steam they will work as two steam engines combined, producing 1.8 MW. As for pipe pressure, it drops quick over a larger distance. Best is to hook up turbines/engines directly to the steam source.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)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. 4 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 ...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.

I am creating a very big base, but a big base needs a lot of power. Right now only half of my steam turbines are working (see screenshot), and my power satisfaction is like 50%.Hey Factorio, I have a little problem right now in my world. I am creating a very big base, but a big base needs a lot of power. Right now only half of my steam turbines are working (see screenshot), and my power satisfaction is like 50%.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. GrindyCottonPincers • 1 yr. ago.Factorio version: 0.15 - 1.1. Downloaded by: 6.43K users. Adds additional ranks of boilers, steam engines, steam turbines, power poles, substations and even nuclear reactors! Adds a "Primary Load" version of all steam engines and turbines. Primary load engines/turbines take precedence over vanilla engines/turbines (all renamed "Secondary" with ...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 ...For some reason one half of my steam turbines aren't working anymore. The problem started when there was no water available to produce steam anymore. I placed more offshore pumps evenly spread out and also pumps in between. It still wasn't working so I cut and replaced all the steam engines and heat exchangers but still no change.May 7, 2021 · Factorio Steam Power Setup & Ratios Tutorial. In this third episode in Season 1 of my new tutorial series, I cover Steam Power including how it works, some b... As others have mentioned, the advanced turbine requires a higher temperature than nuclear reactors can give. However, you can still achieve this via 5kC steam mixing. A nuclear heat exchanger gives 60 steam per second at 415C* which needs to be raised to 975C* or higher. 60 × 415 + s × 5000 = (60+s) * 975.Steam batteries are also popular. Just trickle-charge a bunch of steam tanks from the excess produced in a nuclear plant, or even from a small handful of electric boilers. Then have a bunch of turbines to drain them when a CME hits. If you keep those turbines and the umbrella on an isolated power grid, you don’t even need circuit logic.Factorio version: 0.13 - 1.1 Downloaded by: 211K users. Requires Bob's functions library mod. ... (1 boiler will power 2 steam engines, 1 heat exchanger will power 2 steam turbines) Nuclear:regular ratios are 2:1. (1 hear exchanger will power 4 steam engines, or 1 boiler will power 1 steam turbine)Hello, Over half of my steam turbines are not working. They say no input fluid even though I have steam flowing to them. I have read on other forums that they will only run if they are needed, but I am running on low power meaning they are indeed needed.Nov 30, 2017 · steam turbine isn't working : (. I have it running on +500c steam from nuclear engine+heat transferer but it runs like it's running with regular steam anyway. : (. Showing 1 - 6 of 6 comments. Hedning Nov 30, 2017 @ 4:46am. Make sure it's getting enough steam. They take 60 per second. Pipes have limited flow and heat exchangers can only ... astrosha Aug 10, 2021 @ 6:14pm. 480 MW heat, divided by 5.82 MW per Steam Turbine yields about 83 Steam Turbines. Since each one uses 60 Steam, this means you need to supply call it 4948 Steam/second. With each Heat Exchanger providing 103 Steam/second, this means you need about 48 Heat Exchangers.Join this channel and unlock members-only perks. We need POWER! Perfect ratio for setting up the steam engines, boilers, and offshore pumps that will last you into mid-game. Tutorial Playlist ...a single Burner Turbine generates more power (2MW) than a Boiler+2 Steam Engine setup (1.8MW) it is much cheaper than the Boiler setup you can push off the fluid handling tech branch until quite a lot later, and get electric labs and such first no need to mess around with pumping water, this thing can go anywhereFlat_White_Official • 4 yr. ago. The boilers will only consume fuel at a rate proportional to that at which the steam engines consume steam. The latter depends on your power draw. You will therefore burn the same amount of fuel in either setup, and cause the same amount of pollution. The exception here is a nuclear reactor, which always runs ...If you remove all the exchangers you'll see the whole system rapidly heats up to 1000 even if the heat pipes are "too long". It's just that if there's too much distance between the reactors and pipes the heat can't flow fast enough. So the pipes near the further heat exchangers can't stay above 500C. 8.Advanced steam turbines should be able to take steam from a heat exchanger. They have a minimum operating temperature of 350 which is less than the 415 that heat exchangers produce. EDIT: this is no longer true, as of a few weeks ago the minimum operating temp was switched to 950 in order to keep each generator distinct for their energy source. 2.4 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 …The steam also does not grow colder over time. Using the 165°C steam in a steam engine has the same effect as using it in a steam turbine, although it is impractical, since turbines are made to consume 500°C (superheated) steam, generating proportionally more power. All of this makes for no need of exact calculations.Click on an empty cell to place a nuclear power plant. This layout produces 40 MW output ( 1 SRE ). 40 MW of power output is consumed by 4 Heat Exchangers (10MW per Heat Exchanger ). 4 Heat Exchangers boil 412.36 Water to Steam per second (103.09 per Heat Exchanger ). 412.36 Water requires 1 ( 0.34) Offshore Pumps (1200 per Offshore Pump ).1 tank could hold 2,425 GJ of 500° steam. 224/2.425 = 93 tanks to store the energy of 8 fuel cell (in 8 reactor, in 200 sec). 93 is a lot. I'm thinking to put only 40 tanks, 10 on each side. 40 tanks of 500° steam = 97 GJ. 224 - 97 = 127 GJ missing to store all the energy.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.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°.Originally posted by AlexMBrennan: I would go by the in game description: "Produce more than 10 GJ per hour using solar panels". I would assume that power generated by steam turbines does not count as power generated by solar panels. 10 GJ / 1h = 10 GJ / 3600s = 2.8MW = 66.1 solar panels. It doesn't say on steam using just solar panels and just ...A 500°C steam storage tank is 222 times more space efficient at storing energy than an accumulator as of v0.16.51 (215.56 times if ambient 15°C is taken into account but I didn't notice it having an effect in testing) and with Factorio physics, steam doesn't cool down. The solution is to build: No less than 4 reactors.How to create, edit and save blueprints in Factorio. To create blueprints in Factorio, you must first switch the game to Blueprint mode (ALT+B).

Right now only half of my steam turbines are working (see screenshot), and my power satisfaction is like 50%.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 ...How to find me?-----Feel bad about Adblocker? Support me on Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/JD_PlaysMy Twitt...Alternatively some lines could be bigger than the others, and by mixing fluid flow at the end you can get your perfect steam turbine ratio. A 4 core reactor needs at least 5 pumps of water. I would suggest 6-8 for water pumps for cleaner ratios, as over building on water is cheaper than overbuilding on anything else.It seems from screenshot 4 and 5 that not all turbine are connected to the main network. Maybe looking at the electric network on the map view will show more information. It seems that you only have a local network for the nuclear plant containing just 6 roboport 10 laser 6 lamp and 4 inserter and 28 turbines.Steam power is a type of electricity requiring both water and fuel. Any type of burnable fuel can be used. Offshore Pump Boiler Steam Engine Any burnable fuel will work. e.g. coal Electric Poles Place the Offshore Pump into the water. Connect the boilers to the offshore pump. Attach the Steam Engine to the boilers. Place an Electric Pole within range of the …The 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 ...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 ...1 pump = 1200 fluid/s, engines consume 30/s. We already know that the boiler:engine ratio is 1:2 because the devs said so. #3. Horoai Apr 24, 2017 @ 12:51pm. Originally posted by Ordo Tarradaxius: 1 Pump : 20 Boilers : 40 Engines. 1 pump = 1200 fluid/s, engines consume 30/s.1 Reactor : 4 Heat Exchangers : 7 Turbines Things get interesting when you realize you can get cleaner ratios (1Reactor:10Boilers:4Exchangers:10Turbines, exactly) by preheating the steam with combustion, and use the thermal mass of the reactor / steam to replace accumulators while dynamically switching power sources.A nice, compact 2x2 reactor setup. Features: Anti-waste logic - Will only use reactor fuel when it actually needs to. Utilizes steam storage to create the necessary buffer. Already set up and ready to go, no configuration required.

In this third episode in Season 1 of my new tutorial series, I cover Steam Power including how it works, some b... 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.a single Burner Turbine generates more power (2MW) than a Boiler+2 Steam Engine setup (1.8MW) it is much cheaper than the Boiler setup you can push off the fluid handling tech branch until quite a lot later, and get electric labs and such first no need to mess around with pumping water, this thing can go anywhereFactorio 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.Hey there again. And again i have a Noob Question. Its about Steam TURBINES combied with BOILERS. Yes Boilers ^^ Now i have read that the Energy Output of a Combination like 1 BOILER on 1 TURBINE would bring out the same amount of Energy like it would be with the standart Way 1 BOILER on 2 ENGINES without any losses. Resulting in a overall Concept of 20 BOILERS on 20 TURBINES per Waterpump .... Click on an empty cell to place a nuclear power plant. This layoutCondensers. A way to recycle used steam back into water. Adjacent reactors get a heat bonus. 1x2 grid gets a +100% heat bonus to each reactor, meaning 2 reactors make 4 reactors worth of heat. So a 2x2 grid has 4 reactors, and each reactor gets +200% heat from it's two adjacent neighbors (+100% each), meaning you get the same heat as 4 + (4*2) = 12 reactors. DanielKotes • 2 yr. ago. Depending on which 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 EngineMy current solution is this. Isolate Steam-engine based electricity network. Connect it to the rest of network via Power switch.
