Energy Upgrade (Mekanism)
An Energy Upgrade is used by Mekanism machines to decrease their power usage and increase their maximum energy storage. Up to eight upgrades can be placed in a machine at once.
The energy usage of a machine can be decreased through the use of Energy Upgrades. The energy use per tick of a machine can be calculated as:
EnergyUsage = DefaultUsage x pow(UpgradeMultiplier, (2 x SpeedUpgrades - EnergyUpgrades)/8 ), where
DefaultUsage is a configurable amount of energy that a machine uses per tick and
UpgradeMultiplier is a configurable value that defaults to 10. Therefore, each additional upgrade decreases power usage by 25%.
Maximum Energy Storage
The maximum energy that a machine can store is upgraded by each Energy Upgrade placed in the machine. The maximum energy that can be stored in a machine is calculated as:
MaxEnergy = DefaultEnergy x pow(UpgradeMultiplier, EnergyUpgrades/8), where
DefaultEnergy is a configurable amount of energy that each machine can store and
UpgradeMultiplier is a configurable value that defaults to 10. Therefore, each additional upgrade increases the amount of energy stored by 10x.
