Draconic Evolution Reactor with OpenComputers

  • It's cool

  • You wasted a ridiculous amount of time creating something few people will use

  • You spelled "amount" wrong in the video

  • I don't like polls

I spent a decent amount of time creating a program with OpenComputers to maintain a Draconic Evolution reactor at peak performance. I just wanted to put this out there for anyone who wants to use/improve my code. I think it works pretty dang well as it is.

It keeps a Draconic Evolution reactor at about 7995 degrees, and at 5% containment field strength. I originally wanted to use a PID controller, but it was easier to leave out the integral part of that equation, so now I guess it implements a PD controller.

The only thing to keep in mind when using it is that the program will not work properly if the setup cannot withdraw power as fast as the program wants to. This isn't a problem if you're aware of it though.

Let me know what y'all think.
