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).

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.
