  • Introduction to SM18 & Magnets Tests Facility

  • Work to be done

    • By Operation department together with many more Indians and external contractors

    • Control Infrastructure

  • How SMTMS a web based database system helped operation in everyday work

    • Why we needed this tool

    • Main tasks of the program

    • Other helpful benefits

  • Conclusion


The magnet zoo or what we need to test
The Magnet ZOOor, what we need to test

  • 1232 DIPOLES 15m long each

    • Tunnel filling factor ~20 Km out of 27km and the rest……

  • 360 Short Straight Sections – SSS

    • Quadrupoles integrated with Orbit Dipole Correctors,

    • Octupoles,

    • Sextupoles, skew elements

    • All in same cryostat

  • 114 Dispersion or Insertion Region SSS’s of 14 different types

    • Big issue (Only manual tests)


Test facility in sm18
Test Facility in SM18

  • 12 test benches in SM18

  • Roughly speaking:

    • 3 magnets @1.9 ‘k

    • 3 in warm-up or cool-down phase

    • 3 in connection

      Or disconnection phase

    • 3 spare &/or dedicated to special use

    • 6 power supplies ( 1 per 2 benches)

  • Dipoles as well as SSS’s

    Testing


Foreseen times
Foreseen Times

  • Standard time

    • 12 hrs connection

    • 12 hours vacuum pumping

    • 26 hours cooldown

    • 36 hours cold test

    • 12 hours warm up

    • 12 hours disconnection

  • Total 108 hours per magnet

    • (4.5 days of 24 hours)



Control infrastructure
Control Infrastructure

Tests work
Tests Work

  • Today, tests done via 6 dedicated work ‘consoles’

  • For 6 clusters = 12 benches (magnets)

    • Lots of tests done on floor level (resistance, HV);

  • Power tests

    • Training of magnets

    • (Automatic) Quench Analyses

  • Magnetic measurements

    • Only for a few magnets

    • Magnetic measurement list of things to observe & check during tests

    • Sending of magn. Measurement data to analyses database for others to continue analyses from the sent data


Control room work
Control Room Work

  • Data check and filling

    • In paper logbook (mainly for tests at floor level and analysis)

    • In database most of the filling is automatic, some tests or results have to be entered manually

  • Logbook PC for Equipment Faults

  • Decision on Magnet Goodness

  • Team work collaboration

  • Priority settings


Starting situation particular problems

Excel files on server

Network problem

Takes 2 minutes to save

Excel takes 90 % resources of the PC (24 files of 2 MB)

Sharing problem

Users locked the file

Need to type same data in many files

Quench table test

Sequence

Current history

Paper

Private server

Hidden private data

Only experts can have access

Big files with all built macro

Each file was 2 MB (total DB with 718 magnets is 7 MB)

No global view

For statistics we need to open 3 files per magnet

Test definition and name problem

Not centralized

Starting Situation- Particular Problems


Why we need smtms 1
Why We Need SMTMS (1)

  • Task tracking system

    • We need fixed display with the work ongoing

  • We need concurrent access

    • With Read Only protection

  • Statistics Tools

    • We need to have real time measurements to see where we should put the pressure


Why we need smtms 2
Why We Need SMTMS (2)

  • Avoid duplication of work

    • Filling paper and many files

  • A tool accessible from every PC or WS

  • Easily suitable to our needs

  • Fast enough

  • Data – Style Separation unlike Word or Excel

ASP Technology: Programs are run inside the server.

Server sends only HTML pages. Security by IP addresses


First purpose
First Purpose

  • Keep a track of the test

    • To Do list

      • contains all the possible tests for a magnet

    • Test Sequence

      • Contains the executed test for a particular magnet





Xlquench table
XLQuench Table

XLTest sequence for magnet

For backward compatibility







Update issue
Update Issue

  • At the beginning update was done manually by operators

    • Date Format problems

    • Wrong phase

    • File names with mistake

    • Data depends on other teams

  • Soon we developed an automatic update system


Pull solution
Pull solution

  • For this solution data were available on the web.

  • The automatic update program scans the web services in order to download update information

Server 1

Server 2


Push solution

SM 18 control Room

Push solution

  • For this solution data were available on file servers.

  • The automatic perl update program scans the new files in order to upload new test in the DB

Update DB

File server

Web Server






Other uses of database
Other uses of database

  • Precise name for control system

    • Web Database is able to generate correct name of magnet in case of retesting

  • Display of magnet name and tests on LCD panels in top of the benches is also driven by the web database


Conclusions
Conclusions

  • Lot of the concepts, usage & applications which led to the SMTMS were due to the fact that in the industrial environment of SM18 it is very difficult to make understand people what operation is

  • SMTMS was born out of difficulty to manage the tests in a structured & simplified way, with constant flow of short-stay & rotating Indian staff and other external contractors

  • This project can be re-used in situation where various teams must work together on a defined project


Conclusions1
Conclusions

  • It was made as flexible as possible to cope with monthly modification

  • Automatic update and flexibility made the tools easy to use and to maintain

  • It eases the management of the facility by splitting a big problem into smaller one. With this tool you can easily have a view by magnet, by week, by test, …

  • I would like to thank people in IT division for their help especially E. Roux for much advice he provided to me in ASP programming I would thank also J. Axensalva for the good collaboration we had in this project


Differences between sm18 and mcr

Prototype facility

Repair as they can

Operation not actively involved in Software and design of facility

Each group has its own idea and implements its way

Culture of keeping things secret (Password)

Running accelerator

Fast repair

Operation is central about design and software development

Advice of operation before implementation

Open environment with trust of operation

Differences between SM18 and MCR


Differences between sm18 and mcr1

Short time facility

Uses as it is

Test coordinators have no common rules

Many test to be done on floor level or not automated

Prototype control system

Many bugs

Needs to be improved

Long time run

Try to improve things

Machine supervisors relies on meeting and long tradition

Remote operation functional

Robust control system

Differences between SM18 and MCR


Sm18 and mcr philosophy

Paper Logbook with Test Equipment and Magnet problem mixed

Test sequence and quench files in XL format with redundant information

E-log book for Equipment

Database for magnets

One data base for all magnet information with help of a paper logbook to track test on floor level

SM18 and MCR philosophy


Sm18 and mcr philosophy1

11 words file per magnet stored on a private server

Power tests results on a gigabyte server to be analysed further.

MRM project still not working after more than 600 magnets tested

One web-based data base for all magnet information with the possibility to generate XL files

First Analysis results stored in Database
