Ler bba quad shunt history

LER BBA: QUAD Shunt History

  • In 1995, switchable shunt resistor circuits were installed on each quadrupole in the SPEAR ring to facilitate BBA. They were used with great success.

  • These shunts were removed as part of the SPEAR3 upgrade, and the hardware was sent to Salvage.

  • The shunts were moved to B15 and (expensive) proposals were made to upgrade them for use in PEP2.

  • The shunts were taken as is to NLCTA, cleaned up, and tested on a LER Quad in Magnetic Measurements. 42/45 were found to be fully functional.


Ler bba quad shunt hardware

LER BBA: Quad shunt hardware

  • The shunts consist of two high-power resistors in parallel on a 1” copper heat sink, controlled by a basic IDOM-driven FET switch.

    • Water cooling unnecessary for our application (resistors operating at ~15% rated power on a large thermal mass).

      • We have tested at 150% expected operating power for ~1 hour. Max temperature reached was 55ºC without water cooling.

      • Each shunt will be tested at operating current/voltage before installation.

    • Design is simple yet robust, with a low mortality rate even after months outside in Salvage.

    • Minor control board modifications (snubber circuit rework) are being made to protect the FET switches at our operating values.

    • No-frills controls (+24V, on/off, and as-yet-uncalibrated analog readback of shunt current) make for straightforward cable runs.


Ler bba program goals

LER BBA: Program goals

  • To find the magnetic center of quadrupoles at optically sensitive locations in the ring. Shunts are used to vary the field in one magnet which otherwise lacks individual control.

  • In IR2, there are four strings powering a total of 14 quads: QFCY1 (4), QDCY2 (4), QFCX3 (2), QDCX2 (4)

  • Throughout the ring there are 37 individual QD and QF quads which have been identified as prime candidates for BBA.

    • These are in the arcs, immediately adjacent to sextupoles

    • There are 2-5 quads per half-arc


Ler bba quad shunt inventory

LER BBA: Quad shunt inventory

  • We currently have 18 shunts suitable for use on individual QD and QF magnets.

    • High power resistor values 0.45 W and 0.55 W will shunt 3-4% of a QD/QF magnet’s current.

  • We are expecting delivery of resistors for 8 of the IR2 shunts this week.

    • Available resistors (9 W) will shunt 1-2% magnet current.

  • Resistors for the remaining 6 boards are on order, we expect delivery in December.

    • These will also be 9 W.


  • Quad shunt installation qd qf

    Quad shunt installation, QD/QF

    • We are installing 1-2 moveable shunts per half-arc (2-4 shunts per IR/micro), based on quad(/sext) population.

      • The shunts hook directly across the busses of a quad with leads that bear an uncanny resemblance to automotive jumper cables.

        • Design to be approved.

      • Control cables have been pulled everywhere but IR2.

    • After a round of BBA, these shunts will be moved (during a ROD, presumably) to a neighboring candidate QD or QF.

    • Lather, rinse, repeat. (Two RODs to complete the QD/QF magnets)


    Quad shunt installation ir2

    Quad shunt installation, IR2

    • We are planning to install one non-moveable shunt on each of the 14 QF/DCX/Yn quads in IR2.

      • The shunts also hook directly across the busses of the quads, but with a more captive ring-clamp fixture.

      • Modifications to the shunt covers will have to be made to keep fingers out (quads are not PPS interlocked).

    • We hope to install eight of these before turn-on.

    • The remaining six will go in this December (or over the break).

      • We are planning to have all the cables pulled this downtime, but some may carry over into December if we run out of cable.


    Quad shunt controls

    Quad shunt controls

    • To the control system, the shunts will look like generic digital devices with a corresponding analog readback.

      • With names like: PR04 SHUNT1, 2, 3…

      • One digital control (IDOM bit) per shunt (command ON/OFF)

      • One status (ON/OFF) reflecting that IDOM bit

      • One ASTS value reflecting current through the shunt resistors

        • Not presently calibrated well enough to tell more than whether the shunt is shunting or not, really.

      • SCP Panel and analog status display group exist, though not linked to a PEP panel yet.

      • We’ve requested that the shunt on/off status be on the SDS CUD under LGPS with ON being RED.

    How it all works

    How it all works

    • We are creating a flat file to hold the information of which shunt is on which quad, with a list at the bottom of which shunts can go to which quads.

      • This file will live on the VAX somewhere with an entry in e-log (which e-log to be determined) with its location.

      • The person who moved the shunts is required to change this file

    • For data acquisition, a button macro will prompt which magnet or which shunt you wish to do BBA on, then load up a CRR and take data.

    • Data to be analyzed offline by the Woodley/Wolski coupled analysis matlab code.
