Q & A
3
What is this?
This is a spreadsheet about the Big Reactors mod. Specificly the actively cooled reactor part of the mod.
Configs:Default
4
Why did you make this?
I made this because I had alot of question on how does the mod work? What is the effect of building a reactor a certain way?
FuelUsageMultiplier1
5
So what is in this spreadsheet?
This spreadsheet contains alot of different tests, trying to find the most efficient way to produce steam for the least amount of fuel used!

Info on turbines?

9
Interesting Reactors
A list of interesting reactors, block efficient, fuel efficient, ideal steam output. That kind of thing.
10
Dimension tests
This Sheet contains all test related to altering the dimensions of a reactor. Hight, Width and Length.
11
Coolant tests
This Sheet contains all tests related to coolants.
12
Shape tests
This is me trying to figure out an efficient design using my gathered data.
13
Rod Controll Test
Testing out the effect of Rod Controll settings on a couple of different reactors.
14
Checker vs Dotted
Is the checker pattern better?

Max waste matters to keep turbine close to 900/1800 RPM

Contains additional information! Highly advised to read this if you want to better understand how to make a good reactor...

Small Reactors are much better wider then higher (Better radiation fertilization, aim for 500%+)

Coolant:
Ender is the best outside coolant. More layers of coolant is better. More layers Significantly reduces block efficiency. Max 4 layers on the outside.
73.57%0.04
25
Outside coolant layers bigger then 1 should consist of the outer most layer of resonant ender and the inner layers of cryotheum.
83.13%0.03
26
Cryotheum is the best coolant inbetween rods. 1 coolant between each rod is best. In some smaller/cooler designs Graphite can be better.
92.78%0.03

Coolants are needed inside an actively cooled reactor, the cooling effects actually stack!
102.50%0.03
28
Coolant is not needed in area's where radiation does not travel (see radiation). So the corners can be annything you want.

Theoretical best:
As big as you can build it. Keep the rod's as square as possible for maximum efficiency. IE: 15x15x7 has a 5x5x5 core of fuel rods, 8 layers of coolant and 2 for the casing.
131.92%0.02
31
One big block of fuel rods "dotted" with crytheum. Aka, 1 crytheum completly surrounded in fuel rods.
141.79%0.02
32
Suggested 4 layers of coolant between Fuel Rods and casing. 3 layers of Cryotheum and the outermost layer of resonant ender.

Radiation:
Higher levels of radiation is better. Produced in fuel rods. Travels upto 4 blocks in north/east/south/west direction (Not diagonal or up/down).
171.47%0.01
35
To more fuel rods inside that 4 block area, to higher the radition level inside a reactor.
181.39%0.01
36
The higher the radiation the less fuel used.

Temperature:
Lower is better. Ideal ~200 Degrees. Aslong as this is under 1000 degrees then Radiation is more important.
211.19%0.01
39

After ~1000 Degrees reactor efficiency drops significantly. If you only got 1 coolant layer then adding additional coolant layers will help you out here.
221.14%0.01

Steam stored inside the reactor increases reactor temperature, PUMP IT ALL OUT. Alternatively, adjust fuel rod insertion to lower steam production
231.09%0.01
41
Bigger reactors will eventually go well over 1000 and even 2000 degrees. This is because of the amount of heat generated from coolants absorbing it.

Rod Control:
Reduces reactor temperature, radiation, fuel efficiency, steam production and fuel consumption.
2510.10%0.00
45
Can be used to tweak superior reactor designs to match desired steam output.
46
Can be used to increase fuel efficiency. Certain reactor setups have better efficiency when controlled down.
