    Big Reactors Grid Control

    Ah, my bad...I omitted that I've tried setting up BRGC a few times now. Even with the turbines and the Energy Core attached, BRGC sets the rod insertion upwards of 96%. This improves fuel depletion considerably, but it greatly reduces the amount of steam produced. As expected, if I disconnect the OC cable from the reactor and reduce the rod insertion, the steam output is fine again. With the turbines attached to BRGC, the controller shuts down one of the turbines after increasing rod insertion to 96% or higher. Should I only run one turbine off my reactor? Thanks!

    Big Reactors Grid Control

    I'm having some trouble with BRGC... I have an actively cooled reactor running two turbines, which are charging a Draconic Evolution Energy Core. Without BRGC, the reactor produces 4000mB/t steam, which is piped out to the turbines. After connecting only the reactor to BRGC, it calibrated and set the rod insertion to 96% or higher. This cuts steam output down to about 1600mB/t and my turbines are barely spinning. Why does BRGC set the rod insertion so high? I assume I'm doing something wrong here, but I'm not sure what. Can someone point me in the right direction? Thanks!
