But how this engineer can go in and out ? What small part needs to be attached to the PDU to allow the engineer to go in/out ? I am planning to deploy this unit (and similar units) unmanned a send the crew later, when the basic colony will be put together via remote operation. 2. How the Microwave Power Transceiver and Tundra PDU are supposed to work ? I tried to launch the Tundra PDU (with Microwave Power Transceiver attached) on runway at Kerbin and beside this module, I parked the rover with empty battery pack and Microwave Power Transceiver. But there is no electricity transfer between those two units Thx for any hint. Here is a representative version of how I do much of my Tundra series building: https://imgur.com/pQ4Ly0S I tend to use Nom-o-Matics of various sizes on all my individual buildings since they are single-part solutions that hold mulch, supplies, fertilizer and usually provide enough life support for each craft without needing too much support from other parts of the base (other than a supply of Fertilizer). The Tundra mini-airlock can be swapped out with a Ranger unit for a bit of visual variety, but they are identical in function, mass and cost. I prefer to have additional fuel and depleted fuel tanks on the reactors because I sometimes find it necessary to physically move Uranium fuel around rather than relying upon the automatic functions. With regards to #2, you need some form of crewed Logistics module in the area to enable resource transfer. Try adding a Tundra Pioneer and Logistics module to your powerplant, then make sure both the rover and power plant are crewed. Should work then if you keep in mind that power, like other resources, is transferred in discrete blocks every few seconds (20 seconds??? I don't remember precisely.)
