In the universe that I am developing the following has occurred... A new type of "liquid energy" has been found/created: 432,540,909,020.0724 Mj in 1 Liter
Edit: Description of what the fuel is in case it makes a difference - A type of exotic matter that allows for generating virtual particles with an energy of 432,541 Mj = 1 uL. The matter is not being converted to energy, but rather it is allowing for the virtual particles to be pulled from another dimension into ours. As the amount of energy is pulled through and used the liquid is destroyed. The energy in the matter used up to pull the energy over.
Later a device called an IEG (Infinite Energy Generator) is invented which works by drawing matter from other universes. There are an infinite amount of universes, therefor an infinite amount of matter to draw from, and thus energy. They are not "cheap" to make and smaller versions are at least 5m^3 in size, so not everyone has one nor can they just be built everywhere.
The IEG must fill and be drained between activations. Simple math and easy to figure out... Every time this is turned on it produces 65449.85483 Liters in a 5m sphere, instantly.
So here's the questions.
Q1 Given, the size of this thing, and the amount it how much energy could it actually produce using current technology? The sphere has to be turned on, turned off, and drained to begin with (and possibly cleaned). Let's say there is no "power up/power down", but that still leaves the speed at which the fluid could be removed from the IEG...
Once that is calculated, there is the matter of line capacity. So even if you have this much potential you still have to deal with the limits of the line the electricity is being carried on to be able to handle... So would the carrying capacity be able to keep up with the production amount using modern lines?
Q2 Now... After that, next part. We're dumping a lot of energy into the universe. What would be the long term consequences of doing this? Would there be any?
Q3 And lastly, while this is a "limitless" energy/matter source it clearly has a limit as should be indicated by part 1. Would this limit be enough that it doesn't completely break our civilization?
For reference, 150 liters is enough to power 8 Hera Class Genesis Drives (What is a genesis drive is explained here) to travel from Earth to Alpha Centauri and back. Basically each drive travels at 10c and produces a 10 meter diameter "warp" field when they touch form a capsule bubble rather than sphere (this is just for ease as a designer ^.^). So in interstellar flight I can't imagine this being a lot of energy, but I could be wrong.
