HQ02b Test Goals, Organization and Schedule

HQ Schedule


Hq02b test goals organization and schedule

HQ02b Test Goals

  • Complete quench training at 1.9K (defined criteria to stop in case of slow progress)

    • Assess performance improvements/degradation with higher pre-load

    • Include additional measurements of quench propagation

    • Assess performance of CLIQ system for magnet protection

      • Wish list includes provoked, natural and reference quenches

      • Opportunities for optimization are being discussed

  • Study of quench protection limits

    • MIITS budget before start of permanent degradation

    • Additional degradation down to minimum performance requirements

  • Additional goals:

  • Incorporate/characterize new instrumentation (QA, acoustics etc.)

  • Demonstrate/validate methods to incorporate magnetic shims

  • Not included in this test:

  • Robustness studies: large number of cycles, full accelerator cycle

  • Cold magnetic measurements (warm measurements are included)

HQ02b Test Organization

  • Three weeks of cold testing allocated at the CERN test facility

    • Start in mid-March (to be confirmed)

    • Aiming to deliver magnet at least 2 weeks in advance

  • Test jointly managed by CERN and LARP

    • LARP is in charge of ensuring that the test plan is consistent with the HQ goals and priorities.

    • CERN is in charge of the test operations and to proceed, postpone or cancel planned measurements based on safety considerations and the availability of resources and infrastructure

  • Coordinators: H. Bajas (CERN), G. Sabbi (LARP)

  • Progress discussions will be arranged at the end of each testing day, to summarize results and plan for the next day

  • Update emails to the HQ list and broader meetings to discuss intermediate results and next steps will be arranged as needed.

  • Under discussion: mechanisms for distributing test results to the collaboration

Considerations for Test Plan Review

  • Quench antenna, acoustic sensors and magnetic shims:

    • Prepare for HQ03 and (long) QXF

    • Minimize interference with the main test goals

  • Test plan optimization:

  • Use of data from previous tests to improve efficiency

    • Use HQ02a settings for ramping and detection/protection

    • Use HQ02a quench data as a reference for CLIQ

    • Need to check reproducibility with CERN/FNAL setup

  • Address multiple test goals with the same measurements

    • Combine CLIQ studies with training quenches

    • Combine CLIQ studies with protection limits study

Scenarios for high MIITs Quenches

  • Current plan assumes that HQ02b will achieve short sample limit at 4.5K

    • Intent of pre-load increase is to allow faster training and minimize detraining – without performance degradation

    • This should allow to characterize degradation vs MIITs at 4.5K

  • Alternative scenarios to consider:

    • Performance degradation (with quenches at the pole or mid-plane)

    • Different quench mechanism at 4.5K and 1.9K

  • We don’t know what is the “best” scenario (the most relevant to QXF)

  • Need to take into account the most efficient settings for high MIITs and control quenches from the cryogenics standpoint

  • Need to decide what is the best approach to increase MIITs in a well-controlled and efficient way (a proposal will be presented)

  • Not a standard test and pushing the limits: carefully consider performance and safety issues for both facility and magnet
