Buffer/Active Tank EHP equivalents

Is there a rough conversion between Active tank EHP/S and absolute EHP, ie is 10k EHP equivalent to about 300 EHP/s with reps?

no, for the simple reason that an active tank’s EHP is situational - dependent on incoming DPS and the ship’s capacitors ability to supply power to the rep module.

No, because they are just not the same thing.
It’s like you are trying to compare speed and distance.

Now what you may want is, the ability for a fit, and looking at its remaining free slots, to have an idea of how EHP or EHP/s it can gain.

there’s no conversion between the two because that’s not how it works.

9000 ehp vs 300ehp/s rep doesn’t convert because one of them is a rate over time.

but you can multiply the rate by time to find out at what point you’ll have repaired the same amount of health.

to repair 9000 ehp with a rate of 300 ehp/s, you need to survive for at least 30 seconds. if you survive longer, congrats, you’ve gotten more ehp out of your tank. if you don’t survive as long, then youve gotten less ehp out of your tank (compared to flat buffer).

Yes there’s a conversion between the two, if you know the time.

EHP/s * time = EHP

For short engagements, this means a large EHP buffer is better. For long engagements you’d want to look for EHP/s repairs. And at a certain time in between short and long, both sides of the equation will be equal.
