PH-DT-DI Gas Service Team

  • Gas Service Team mandate:

  • M&O and upgrades of the gas systems for all the LHC experiments:

  • preventive and corrective maintenance on 30 gas systems

  • on-call service all along the year (24/24 7/7) – phone 162516

  • Construction of gas systems for other experiments at CERN (CLOUD, NA62, LINAC4, …)

  • General support for test beam and equipment belonging to external users.

First contact persons for all issues related to ALICE gas systems during working hours is

in charge of:

-standard operation

-standard maintenance/small modifications

-daily check of all systems

ALICE experiment and Gas Service Team

If Albin is on holiday or busy:

-during working hours  call directly Roberto (16-2146)

-outside working hours  call directly on-call service (16-2516)

Outside working hours call directly on-call service (16-2516)

Gas service working team

Gas Service working team

  • In order to cope with LS1 a significant reinforcement of the team during 2013 was needed:

    • two new users with high experience in the workshop (mechanics and gas systems)

    • many students for short and well defined projects

  • Details:

  • CERN FTE (and students > 1 year):

    • 6.3 FTE: +1.3 wrt 2012

      • Ernesto: TTS 50% for gas project

  • “FSU” (FSU + technical users):

    • 5.5 FTE: +1.5 wrt 2012

      • Ace: user on ALICE budget

      • Andrei: user on ALICE budget

  • Trainees (student < 1 year)

    • 1.9 FTE: +1.8 wrt 2012

      • 4 trainees (3 from Poland, 1 from Canada)

      • 2 summer students

      • 2 children of staff members

  • 2013 activities can be divided into three main sectors:

    • Standard maintenance of gas systems for the LHC experiments

    • LS1 consolidation program for the LHC experiments

    • Not LHC experiments/support to users

  • Standard maintenance andLS1 consolidation programconstitute the main field of activity

  • Not LHC experiments and support to users represent about 20% of the activities

LS1 – 2013: Overview

Review usage of alice gas m o 2013

Review usage of ALICE gas M&O 2013

  • ALICE contribution to M&O budget for gas systems:

  • 130+ 28 (2013-LS1 consolidation) kCHF

  • Total 158 kCHF

On-call service:

ALICE gas M&O 2013: on-call

  • Analysis (TRD)

  • Gas supply high flow alarm (Ar, CO2, N2)

  • Power supply (24 V)

  • Pressure regulation valve (TPC)

  • Pump (TPC)

  • Purifier (TRD)

  • Xerecuperation (TRD)

  • Gas supply not ready (EN-MEF) Xe, R134a, SF6, Ar

  • Infrastructure (GS-ASE) GS intervention, Ar-H2

  • Software (EN-ICE) Communication, TPC

Review usage of ALICE gas M&O 2013

On-call service summary

On average only 1.5 h/year/system of downtime

(power-cuts and outside events excluded)

Intervention triggered by:

ALICE gas M&O 2013: on-call

  • Intervention are:

  • Equally distributed between experiments

  • Decreasing with time 

  • EN-ICE ispreparing the migration to a new software version (CPC6 & more).

  • The migration requires to (~) completely rewrite the code (PLC+PVSS):

  • Preparation phase needed to definestrategy and milestons

    • Define modules, test logic, …

    • Validation of one/twogassystemscoveringalmost all functionalities

    • Deployment on one experiment (all detectors)

    • Deployment on all the experiments

  • A completecommissioningwillberequired (same as itwasdoneat the first start-up of the gassystems)

  • About one-twoweek of stop/instability for each detector

  • ActivitiyscheduledfromJanuary to April 2014

  • Resolveremaining bugs without long stop of gassystems - September-October 2014
