Big Reactors Grid Control

Recommended Posts

Me again, as a player this time around :D

Would it be possible to add scrolling support to the Combined/Reactors/Turbines tabs? I could not see all my turbines lol

Also, do you let turbines run free and go on "error" condition on purpose?

Scrolling support, eh? maybe :P Sounds easy, right? Fricking hard to actually do.

If your turbines run straight into "error" mode then you have more turbine blades for your coil. BRGC assumes that if your turbine has enough blades to support X mB/t then your coil does too.

 

EDIT:

That being said - if that's not the case and everything SHOULD work but its not then its a bug

Sure, super easy :lol:

I'm running the same old 32 blocks of Ludicrite coils with 80 blades to use the full 2000 mB of steam. 32 Turbines driven by 4 reactors (8 Turbines per Reactor). All feeding power into one Draconic' giant ball of power

Welp - your setup is a lot bigger than my test setup then xD

I'll look into it. My guess is that they run into an error while they're being spun up to optimal rpm?

I'll try to free up some time to build a new setup and debug the issue. Also... maybe scrollbar :P

Your guess is correct. So far I've only connected the 4 reactors (by connecting only them in the beginning to let them calibrate) and 2 groups of 8 turbines. And the ball of power

I have 3 reactors. and i cannot get it to work properly with them.  The calibrating status just seems to last forever.  The whole time the program just keeps lowering the output of my reactors so my base all but shuts down. how long is the calibrating faze supposed to last?

I need some help, My reactor isnt calibrating. Its stuck on calibrating for like an hour now.

OC Version: MC1.7.10.1.7.4.1265

BigReactors Version: 0.4.3A

Can you try a "brgcctrl service reactor runOnce" and see if an error occurs? Also a screenshot of the reactors GUI and the layout would be nice.

Please post a schematic of your reactor so I can investigate the issue. Calibration never took longer than 3 minutes for me (passive reactor). Active reactors calibrate really fast tho.

When I tried to update my test instance I noticed that no new version of OC has been uploaded to curseforge yet.

That means that the timer bug is still a thing in your OpenOS installations

So the "fix" is to downgrade OC (and reinstall OpenOS afterwards) or do the thing at the bottom of my post here 

 

That would explain why @ZeroNoRyouki runs into issues as well as all of your "calibration stuck" issues.

I'm sorry but that is something I can't fix.

OK so, I've edited the file and rebooted the server. Now the computer screen update itself like it used to do and all the linked turbines (24 of 32) were calibrated correctly with the exception of 3 of them. One if spinning up and down on a target speed of 750 RPM (it reach the "stable" state around 720~ RPM, and then rise again to around 760~ RPM and then goes in fast spindown until it become stable again) and two that are still in kickoff state with a target speed of 750 RPM but with the flow rate set the 0 mB/t. All 3 turbines have more than 2000 mB of steam in their internal tank

 

Edit: the grid is in "charge" mode right now

Hi, I don't know if this is still active or not, but your program doesn't seem to work with my reactor. It connects after executing rc brgc_reactor start but thats all... it says "calibrating" but isn't doing anything even tho its connected to my turbine at full speed. I've tried every possible solution here but none of them worked...

Would this explain why I'm running into "ERROR" as it calibrates my reactor/turbines?  I have a similar setup to  ZeroNoRyouki.

Im using Extreme Reactors 0.4.5.49, and Open Computers 1.7.4.153.  

Is there any temporary fix to handle this?  Downgrade? Modify something? anything?

Hello - sorry I don't have 1.7.5 out yet. That should be soon. In the meantime, rather than downgrading OC, I would recommend you just patch openos manually on each machine (tedious, sorry)

(with an internet card, do this from your OC machine on the command line)

wget -f https://raw.githubusercontent.com/MightyPirates/OpenComputers/master-MC1.12/src/main/resources/assets/opencomputers/loot/openos/lib/event.lua -O /lib/event.lua
reboot

We want to control our reactor from a remote location. Our reactor is hundreds of blocks away from our base and attempting to connect it to our base results with the reactor appearing for a few seconds then disconnecting. Is it possible to connect it over large distances?

No you will either have to use a loooong cable and chunkload a the entire cable or use some kind of mod that allows direct OC connectivity wirelessly

Hi, I do this and reboot, and it does not fix the issue. Nothing different occurs.

So I ended up manually editing event.lua with the fix that was linked above. Now it calibrates. Doing the wget and replacing event.lua did not work. The bug was still present in the downloaded version of event.lua.

 

Now everything is working exactly as it should.
