Optimization of the nominal collision scheme and foreseen ramping test

Example of IP1, beta*=0.55m, 1mm separation.

  • The time required to bring the beams into collision is given by the slowest magnet.



Preparation for the ramping test
Preparation for the ramping test and foreseen ramping test

  • A test of the ramping of the separation bumps is foreseen in the 2nd half of May.

  • The aim is to measure the performance of the correctors involved in the LHC crossing scheme and determine an optimal configuration as well as the system flexibility.

  • Different magnet types with different limitations are involved (the most critical being the MCBX limited by the QPS).

  • It is important to include all these magnets in the test.


MCBX and foreseen ramping test

  • MCBX are special nested magnets acting on both planes and beams at the same time.

  • Proposal for the test:

  • Ramp up from Imin to Imax and back to Imin. Find maximum /optimum acceleration /ramping rate.

  • Repeat for different values of Imax and Imin .

  • Test planes separately and with the other plane powered to an intensity required for the crossing angle.

  • Test settings corresponding to the four IPs.


Mcbc and mcby
MCBC and MCBY and foreseen ramping test

  • The MCBC and MCBY allow to independently control the two beams in the horizontal and vertical plane.

  • They are also used for orbit corrections and optimization.

  • Proposal for the test:

  • Same as for the MCBX.

  • Find the maximum /optimum acceleration /ramping rate.


Separation knobs
Separation knobs and foreseen ramping test

  • Prepare several separation for different optics configurations (with and without MCBX, crossing angle on/off, high beta optics).

  • Use the MADX online model to generate the knobs.

  • Test separation scan knobs (no MCBX) in both planes (crossing angle on/off).

  • Software to be used for this test to be determined:

  • LSA trim, separation scan application, other?

  • System flexibility (It should be easy to change the settings to go faster or slower).


Conclusion
Conclusion and foreseen ramping test

  • It was possible to reduce the time to bring the beams into collisions by retuning the separation bumps.

  • A test is foreseen in order to see whether we can improve the hardware performance.

  • Still need to provide relevant powering tables and a detailed description for the test.

  • Prepared from the optics point of view. To be complemented by hardware considerations. Any comments or suggestions are welcome.
