Why do superconductors lose a lot of energy?


(Mr.CHEN) #1

Whether GT5U or GT6, superconductors have a resistance of 1EU/m, which is strange because even long-distance electric wires are only 0.125 EU/m. Although superconductors still have a small amount of resistance in reality, it is impossible to be so large. This makes superconductors look less “superconductive”, I suggest that the resistance of superconductors can be reduced to 0.0625EU/m even smaller or cancels the resistance of superconductors, which at least makes them look like superconductors.

Ah the Superconductors in the state they are right now, dont have a Cooling System built around them, so the Cooling “Tax” is 1 EU/p on them.

If or whenever they get reworked to use a separate Cooling System, they will be 0 Loss.
