Neotix Posted December 4, 2017 Share Posted December 4, 2017 One sensor and no dupes Very easy setup. Overlay of entire setup. We have sensor on top, generator bellow, buffer battery (optional), transformer, "sensor" battery, transformer and battery "array" (for testing purpose I used only one battery). Pumps bellow imitate energy consumption. Wires connections. Very important is to connect valve and pump after first transformer, not directly after generator. Automation. Buffer gate is to avoid fast ON/OFF when sensor battery is in depleted/charged mode. Calculate time to avoid overproduction. Sensor pipes. It need very little of water. The lesser, the better. In this test I used 100g of water. I found out that shutoff valve don't consume energy when little of fluid go thru (probably because of rounding float values). How it works? When "sensor" battery is depleted, shutoff valve is closed and water drop on airflow tile. It's very important to use them, not regular tiles because pump will take all water at once and not even a drop will leave. Hydro sensor is set to "Above 0" and sent activation signal to the generator. Battery between transformers won't be charged until battery array is full so pump in sensor won't work til then. When battery array is full, "sensor" battery start charging and pump take water from hydro sensor. Buffer gate will keep generator running some time to charge buffer battery and then generation will stop. When "sensor" battery will deplete, entire proces will repeat.
