Unlike Real Life™, there is no actual "voltage" in IC². EU travels in "packets" through wires with near-infinite speed and has smart pathfinding (somewhat like RP2 pneumatic tubes). Packets are measured in size (in EU/p) and volume (EU). (Size being the amount of energy it contains as it leaves a storage unit, volume being how much energy is left in each packet after inefficient cable usage).
 
 
 
Transformers have two modes - "step up" and "step down". By default, the transformer will be in step up mode when it receives a redstone signal, and step down mode otherwise. This can be changed in the GUI.
 
 
 
With default settings a HVT (or High Voltage Transformer) operates in two different ways.
 
 
 
* If redstone power is '''not''' applied, it consumes 2048 EU in '''any packet size''' and converts them into up to four 512 EU/p. '''All conversions are limited to one per tick. (Converting 2048 EU into 4x512 EU is considered one conversion.)'''
 
* If redstone power is applied, it consumes 2048 EU in '''any packet size''' and converts them into one 2048 EU/p. '''All conversions are limited to one per tick.'''
 
=== Converting to HV ===
 
In order to convert to HV, you must point the input cable (any "voltage") to the 3-dotted side and then link any number of output cables from the 1-dotted side. Remember to use input cables that can withstand the packets you are sending in and [[HV Cable]] or [[Glass Fibre Cable]] for the output.
 
 
 
=== Converting to EV ===
 
In order to convert to EV, you must '''apply redstone power through a lever, a repeater or a redstone wire''', point the input cables (any "voltage") to any 1-dotted side and then link the output cable from the 3-dotted side. Remember to use input cables that can withstand the packets you are sending in and [[HV Cable]] for the output.

== Other usages ==
 
Multiple HVT may be directly installed on a [[Nuclear Reactor]] if the reactor outputs more than 2048 EU/t as conventional wires ([[HV cables]]) cannot handle packet sizes over 2048 EU/p.
