Extraction energy[]

Extraction energy is used to calculate the energy usage of a product in a production chain. For example, being used in Alternate recipe analysis.

To calculate the extraction energy of the particular ore / fluid resource, first achieve the maximum mining / extraction rate on the map, overclock all of the miners and extractors appropriately. The summation of the power consumption is then divided by the extraction rate.

For example, for Iron Ore:

  • The maximum mining rate is 70380 / min or 1173 / sec.
  • There are 33 Impure and 41 Normal Iron nodes on the map, which means 74 Miner Mk.3 to be built on them, each overclocked to 250%, which means 129.96 MW each.
  • There are 46 Pure Iron nodes on the map, which means 46 Miner Mk.3 each overclocked to 162.5%, which means 65.24 MW each.
  • The total power consumption is then 12618.24 MW. Recall that MW means MJ / sec.
  • Dividing 12618.24 MJ / sec by 1173 / sec, we will get:
  • The average extraction energy for Iron Ore is 10.76 MJ.
