Introduction[edit]

Data types and naming convention:

  • boolean is a data type with two possible values:
    • High or H (logical 1) - input: non-zero value; output: 15;
    • Low or L (logical 0) - input: zero value; output: 0;
  • int or word - 32-bit signed integer, −2 147 483 648 … 2 147 483 647 ( from (-231) to 231).
  • byte - 8-bit unsigned integer, 0…255 (from 0 to 28-1), corresponds to the values that could be entered using PRC interface;
  • short - 16-bit unsigned integer, 0…65535 (from 0 to 216-1);
  • nibble - 4-bit unsigned integer, 0…15 (0…24-1), equivalent to the vanilla redstone signal range;

Inverse time relay[edit]

Inputs:

  • I: int; input signal
  • I1p: short; pick-up value; minimum signal value when relay can be activated,
  • I1i: short; integration counter multiplier for the relay, relay adds I/(100*I1k) to internal counter every tick.
  • I1k: 1…1000; when internal integration counter exceeds this value - relay will trip.
  • I2: 64…255 'immediate trip', relay will trip immediately when I>I1p*I2/64;
  • EN# boolean; 'disable relay'

Outputs:

  • TRP: boolean; 'relay tripped'
  • ST: boolean; 'relay started'
  • TRP#: boolean; 'relay is not tripped'
  • ST#: boolean; 'relay is not started'

Automatic transfer switch[edit]

This circuit could be used to monitor and control power plant.

Inputs:

  • Mok: boolean; main power source is ready. (lava or fuel in the tank, boiler is warm, energy cell has some energy, there is coal (or other fuel) in AE network.
  • Sok: boolean; stand-by power source is ready.
  • Td: byte; time delay in seconds (0-255) between main <> standby transition. For most purposes it should be a constant.
  • RST: boolean; standby reset - when HIGH (non-zero) signal is received and main power source is ready (Mok) it transfer output from standby source to the main one. Set it to constant non-zero value if you want automatic transfer to the restored main supply.

Outputs:

  • EnS: boolean; 'Enable Stand-by' command to turn on stand-by power supply (activate magmatic or combustion engines, enable energy cell, start loading coal into generators or pumping lava into geothermals)
  • EnM: boolean; (optional) 'Enable Main' command to turn on main power supply.
  • ALM: boolean; 'Alarm' is active when at least one of the power sources is not ready
  • ERR: boolean; 'Error' (complete power loss) - active when both power sources are unavailable.
