The optimal ratio is 0 84 21 25 accumulators per solar panel and 23 8 solar panels per megawatt required by your factory this ratio accounts for solar panels needed to charge the accumulators this means that you need 1 428 mw of production of solar panels and 100mj of storage to provide 1 mw of power over one day night cycle.

I have batteries and solar panels in my power armor but the batteries don t seem to be charging.
Following that ideal ratio i would need 13 750 solar panels for my 11k accumulators but the 9 1k solar panels puts out 547mw while my factory only uses 350mw and they can fully charge the accumulators in 3 4 of the daytime.

A last method involves a circuit system that i haven t investigated closely combinators are used to manipulate a value every tic for a stable value but when a combinator s power runs low the combinator slows down and a combinator on an isolated grid one solar panel one accumulator and one small power pole can increment the value freely.

So that ideal ratio is not so ideal.
Accumulators charges at daytime releases energy at night cause solar don t work at night last edited by dcyw.
In general this is a technique which works well when you ve just researched accumulators and solar panels but don t have enough resources to build big solar farms and accumulator farms yet.
Portable solar panels can be used to slowly recharge energy shields out of combat but are nearly useless for personal laser defense or exoskeleton even with a large number of batteries.
This means one solar panel produces an average of 42 kw over one day and night cycle.

Instead it resaults in building far more solar panels then are needed.
Portable solar panels are the basic power generating units for modular armor and the spidertron they provide only a small amount of power and only during the daytime.
Generated power will increase decrease linearly during dusk and dawn and no power is produced at night.
Keep in mind the game uses kw or mw or gw seconds as defualt which is why i converted to them in the calculations.
Solar panels are an unlimited source of free energy that produce no pollution.
I m not sure what s causing this but does anyone have any solutions.
During daylight hours every panel provides the maximum power level 60kw.
Essentially you are saying only deliver power to these systems if i have enough to spare and even then don t exceed this delivery rate.
