(from http://ftbwiki.org/ElectriCraft for now)

ElectriCraft adds a new way to transport and store RotaryCraft power. Like ReactorCraft, this mod is dependent on RotaryCraft. ElectriCraft adds electrical motors and generators, as well as several tiers of wires. It follows a simplified version of the behavior of real-world electricity, where voltage and current are two distinct parameters, making this power system 3D like that of RotaryCraft. Voltage is generated by rotational speed, while current is generated by torque into the generator. Higher currents can melt wires that cannot handle it, while voltage is lost over distance proportional to the wire resistance. ElectriCraft also adds batteries to store power; they charge from the sides or below, and can emit power from the top when given a redstone signal. Each tier has a greater storage capacity and a greater (fixed) output than the last. ElectriCraft also adds two wire control devices. Resistors act as current limiters, allowing for unequal distribution of power. To change the value, dye the three bands according to standard resistor color codes. Relays act as redstone-controlled switches.

Machines[edit]

  • Batteries ( See the topic for the different types )
  • RFBattery ( very usefull in combination with the multiblock generator from reactorcraft )
  • Induction Motor ( Creating rotary power from stored energy )
  • Resistor ( Limiting the throughput )
  • Relay ( redstone control for signal/cables )
  • Induction Generator ( Convert rotary to battery stored energy )

Batteries[edit]

Electricraft batteries can be charged while they output power (unlike the rotarycraft industrialcoil).
The battery outputs at a fixed rate at all times, even if the use of the output has been limited by resistors.
The battery will not output if there is no target to receive at all.
Electricraft output a redstone signal for use with a comparator that gives the % filled of the battery (in 16 redstone power steps (0-15)).
This can be used to block a line using a relay with the inverted output.
  • Redstone Battery
  • Lustrous Battery
  • Azulant Battery
  • Pyrocyon Battery
  • Graphene Battery
  • Auroral Battery

Wires[edit]

ElectriCraft Wires come in all the ore types and include an insulated and noninsulated type for each material except SuperConducting.

Cable joins the Ampere of 2 source signals  but limits to the lowest Volt of the two inputs.
Cable splits the Ampere of 1 source to 2 target blocks, and keeps the voltage equal to the input.
