The '''HV Transformer''' is used to convert '''High Voltage''' (512 EU/t) into '''Extreme Voltage''' (2048 EU/t) and back.  The HV Transformer is one step up from the [[MV Transformer]] and will take incoming packets [[EU]] packets up to 512 in size and convert them into larger packets up to 2048 in size.
+
There is no "Voltage" and current energy implementation have nothing with IRL electricity, "voltage" term is totally wrong.
 +
Energy transfered like items over pipe network with instant speed and smart pathfinding. (same implementation as RP2 pneumatics but instant)
 +
Theese "items" called packets and have only one parameter - size.
 +
Size measures in Energy Unit per Packet (EU\P).
  
A Redstone signal may be applied to reverse the conversion, thereby emitting 2048 [[EUP]] from the output face (the 3-dotted one), and accepting 512 EUP or lower from the input faces.  
+
512<>2048 EU\P HV Transformer allow to stack four 512 packets into single 2048 or break 2048 packet into four 512.
 +
Transformer have efficiency of 100% (no energy loss) and will pass 2048 EU into 512 wires in form of four 512 packets without burning anything.
  
The HV Transformer can handle a maximum of one conversion per tick, limiting the maximum transfer to 2048 EU/t in either mode.
+
Transformer will never IO more then 2048 EU\T, unlike cables that can handle unlimited EU\T.
 +
To overcome this limit you need multiple transformers linked to same cables in parralel.
  
The voltage conversion is lossless which makes choosing the proper wiring for the interfaces easy.  The Extreme Voltage I/O can only be handled by [[HV Cable]].  The High Voltage I/O face is safe to connect to [[Glass Fibre Cable]], [[Splitter Cable]], [[Detector Cable]], and [[HV Cable]] only. 
+
3-DOT side is 2048 IO
 +
Other sides are 512 IO
  
Note that since HV Cable suffers from high resistance losses, HV Transformers should be placed to close to whatever is using/producing the Extreme Voltage to minimize this loss.

(IO - Input Output)

 +
Default mode is 2048>512*4
 +
Providing redstone current will switch mode to X>2048.

NOTE: internal storage of 2048 allow this one to burn your stuff ever without power source.

There is no "Voltage" and current energy implementation have nothing with IRL electricity, "voltage" term is totally wrong. Energy transfered like items over pipe network with instant speed and smart pathfinding. (same implementation as RP2 pneumatics but instant) Theese "items" called packets and have only one parameter - size. Size measures in Energy Unit per Packet (EU\P).

512<>2048 EU\P HV Transformer allow to stack four 512 packets into single 2048 or break 2048 packet into four 512. Transformer have efficiency of 100% (no energy loss) and will pass 2048 EU into 512 wires in form of four 512 packets without burning anything.

Transformer will never IO more then 2048 EU\T, unlike cables that can handle unlimited EU\T. To overcome this limit you need multiple transformers linked to same cables in parralel.

3-DOT side is 2048 IO Other sides are 512 IO

(IO - Input Output)

Default mode is 2048>512*4 Providing redstone current will switch mode to X>2048.

NOTE: internal storage of 2048 allow this one to burn your stuff ever without power source.
