We add 5 tiers of Electric Transformators for better control over the electric supply network. The transfer power for each tier is 1MW, 10MW, 100MW, 1GW, 10GW with efficiency of ~96% The images in the gallery show units of available tiers and recommended connection schemes.

Use examples

  • limit electric production or consumption for parts of the factory
  • change electric network priorities
  • maximize electric energy production while keeping accumulators charged
  • stage supply priorities with a transformator grid
  • keep nuclear reactors at maximum production
  • and more
  • tell us how transformators are used at your factory!

Startup settings


  • efficiency: efficiency of power conversion (as percentage); minimum: 1, maximum 100, default: 96
  • check for electric shorts: interval of the check for electric shorts (as ticks); disable: 0, default: 600
  • hide alt key overlay: hide the blue arrows and yellow thunderbolts on placed transformators (as boolean); enable: on, default: off

Known issues


  • the transformator graphic looks otherworldly in terms of factorio design; we're looking for a graphics guru, who would like to remake it

Compatibility


  • mods which change power pole connection areas can make Electric Transformators non-functional
  • please report on the «Discussion» page if any incompatibilities are discovered
