Overview

An SEF issued Naquadah Generator
Naquadah generators are advanced reactor units that produce tremendous amounts of clean energy from small amounts of refined Naquadah.

Naquadah generators were originally developed by the Orbanians but were later adapted and further developed by the SGC. The UKGC developed their own version of a Naquadah Generator, before being given the designs of the SGC Mk.1 Generator. Naquadah Generators have since been used to power many technologies from Earth, with several variants having been created as a result of continuing advances in the technology.


Details

The Naquadah Generator utilises a series of refined Naquadah rods which are heated up via induction. As the super-heated Naquadah rods vibrate, they create a Piezo-electric feedback loop within the crystalline structure of the Naquadah. This feedback loop outputs tremendous amounts of energy. If the energy is not channelled into usable energy, then the reactor will build up towards an overload. Over time, the piezoelectric feedback loop causes the Naquadah rods to break down. The length of time before the Naquadah becomes unusable is inversely proportional to the amount of energy being produced by the reactor.

A single Mk.1 Naquadah Generator can produce 144 terrajoules of energy, this equates to roughly 40 Gigawatt hours or 34 kilotons of TNT over the course of it's useful lifetime. This also means that a single Mk.1 Naquadah Generator could power Greater London for one year. If a Mk.1 Generator was allowed to overload, it would produce a 20 kiloton explosion (roughly the same size as the WW2 Fat Man bomb).


Naquadah Reactor

Naquadah Reactors, such as those used onboard most UNE spaceships, use a larger and more complex format of a Naquadah Generator. The Naquadah rods of the generator are replaced by a superheated flow of liquid Naquadah in a reactor. The Mk.1 Naquadah Reactor, first built in 2005, was capable of outputting 28.8 petajoules of energy (roughly 200x that of a single Naquadah Generator).

Current models

The current version of the Naquadah Generator is the Mk.V, which has an operational output of 1.21 petajoules of energy (8.4x the output of the Mk.1), and the Mk.IV Naquadah Reactor has an operational output of 250 petajoules (8.6x the output of the Mk.1).
