Summary table storage ring power supplies

Summary Table – Storage Ring Power Supplies

There is a total of 997 power supply channels used for the storage ring


Main dipole power supply

Main Dipole Power Supply

The Dipole Main power supply has been designed in sections.

There will be two 450 Amp 600 Volt very low noise power converters that will be supply by a vender.

Preliminary design from the vender

(Applied Power Systems) has been accepted and Final Design Review is scheduled for mid-February.

The overall controls and digital current regulator has been designed by BNL and components are in house.

Minor hardware and software development remains.

Complete system should be ready for installation by ~ August of this year.

Multipole corrector transport line power supply configurations

Multipole, Corrector, & Transport Line Power Supply Configurations

  • Power supplies are of a modular design.

  • The same components are used for different types of power supplies.

  • The current regulator chassis have three models that cover all the different power supplies (1 channel slow, 2 channel fast, 2 channel slow, time constant boards will add more variations).

  • The PSI chassis have two models – 1 channel & 2 channel versions.

  • There are various AC input module - They are sized for the different power converters used.

  • There are only four different sizes of commercial power converter used, this allows the same mechanical design to be used for the different power supplies.

  • There are only three different models of bipolar power amplifiers. Two low power versions and a high power version that uses a pre-regulator. The pre-regulator is one of the commercial power converters. The low power version will have different raw power supplies but use the same circuit board.

  • The ~1800 DCCTs are a single 200 A model that will have different turns going through them for different power supply current ratings. There are about 5 power supplies that require a 400 amp DCCT.

  • We are buying (and testing) separate components and assembly the power supply in their final locations and then test the completed systems in place.

Multipole transport line unipolar power supplies

Multipole & Transport Line Unipolar Power Supplies

This configuration is used for Quadrupole, Sextupole, & Transport Line magnet circuits.

Two DCCTs are used, one for feedback and the other for redundant monitoring.

Power Supply Controller – Performs all high level functions for the power supply – setpoint /ramp generation and diagnostic monitoring.

There are no local controls for the power supplies. Everything has to go through the control system.

All the power supply components will be tested separately at BNL or at the vender. Final testing of the complete power supply is when they are assembled in the equipment racks.

The design incorporates a large amount of monitoring instrumentation that will be used for initial testing and operations.

Power Supply is made up of standard building blocks

The current stability is well within the power supply requirements.

Sr alignment corrector power supplies

SR Alignment Corrector Power Supplies

Two channel scheme developed to reduce cost.

This block diagram is for corrector model D in the Storage Ring and Corrector A in the BSRTL

Design uses DCCTs for current feedback and has a redundant DCCTs for each channel.

Multiple turns through DCCTs is used to reduce noise levels.

The design shares some main components of each ps channel to reduce costs.

It requires the addition of components in the regulator and PSI to make it a 2 channel version.

This two channel configuration is also used for corrector models F. Model F is used for 90 mm dipole magnet trim coils. An over-voltage crowbar circuit is also added between the power amplifier and DCCTs.

Low Current Corrector Power Supplies

This power supply is used for the low current fast global corrector magnets , the 35mm aperture dipole trim coils and the LBTL corrector magnets.

The power supply can have a high bandwidth depending on the application. The power amplifier has a bandwidth of 100 kHz.

The low current of this ps and the use of shunts as the feedback element will also allow a higher bandwidth than what could have been achieved with DCCTs.

The stability requirements are relaxed compared to the alignment correctors.

This design will use the same 2 channel regulator and psi chassis as in the alignment correctors.

Power supply integration installation for pendant 1 and linac phase 1

Power Supply Integration & Installationfor Pendant 1 and LINAC Phase 1

  • Installation will have to be done in various stages in Pendant 1 and possibly Pendant 2 depending when parts are delivered. The corrector power amplifiers and harness are the main issues.

  • Testing power supplies system components before they are installed in the machine has taken a considerable amount of resources. There are automated test station for regulators, PSIs. PSCs. and ACICMs, built and production testing is in progress. Detailed test documentation has been developed for these components.

  • Power converters, equipment shelves, and mounting hardware have been installed in most of P1 and some of P2.

  • Testing of some of the power supply controls will start when the network becomes available some time next month. This also requires the computer room to be operational.

  • A large effort was spent in getting the transport line power supplies installed and tested for LINAC phase 1. There was a steep learning curve that we had to go through to get the components ready for installation. Biggest issue was the wiring harness construction and the preparation of the regulators and corrector power amplifiers.

  • As the corrector power amplifiers get delivered they will be installed and tested.

  • High current testing can not start until DI water systems become available by mid February.

  • The complete installation of Cell 25 is our next short term goal. We should have everything for installation except the fast power amplifiers.

Power Supply Procurement Status

Power supplies electrical utilities

Power Supply Procurement Status

  • The following have been issues with the procurements over the past year:

    • Parts shortages and excessive lead times beyond historical norms.

    • Venders are not able to maintain schedules – No incentives in small contracts.

    • Design work required to fix minor problems after first article testing – Not included in schedule.

    • Late procurements due to lack of engineering and design resources. (Corrector Amplifiers & Harnesses).

Power supplies electrical utilities

Power Supply Summary

  • Power Supply designs are all done, some procurement documentation is still required for ac powered amplifiers (needed for fast correctors and 35 mm Dipole Trim Coils), cable harnesses, and Magnet Thermal Switch Interface back panel.

  • Procurements are well under way. Most of the large procurement are either complete or are in the last stages of deliveries. All remaining procurements are simple build to print RFQs. Venders are line up and are ready to submit bids. Long lead items have been already purchased.

  • Test systems have been built for all major sub system and are being used for pre-installation testing.

  • The rack layouts of the power supplies are of a mature design. First article components have been installed in test racks in bldg 902 to check for fit and to do final harnessing.

  • Software for power supply control and monitoring is operational and has been tested in bldg 902 rack setup.

  • Tests done of first article unipolar power supplies show the performance meets all technical requirement.

  • A large effort was made to get the power supplies for Linac phase 1 ready for testing. All power supplies will be operational when the water system is available. (Mid-February)

  • Storage ring installation sequence will depend on availability of the different power supply components.

  • Procurement and installation schedule is not ideal for P1 but should not be a problem for the rest of the machine.

Summary for Electrical Utilities

Storage Ring Mezzanine

  • Cable tray installation work done by the building contractor is progressing well. P1,P2, P3 & P4 are complete and P5 should be started in early February.

  • AC power connections for standard equipment enclosures in P1 & P2 are completed. Work has started in P3. Work on the SR mezzanine is greatly slowed due to lack of Electrician resources. Once the work in the Linac & Booster is done, the rate of work in the mezzanine will greatly increase.

  • Installations to date have been inspected for NEC compliance and there have no issues.

    Storage Ring Tunnel

  • Some minor design work still need to be done for front ends and straight sections.

  • Work will be required to install very small trays for vertical cables going to the girders.


  • The Linac cable tray and AC power connection required more resources then originally planed.

  • Installation of all electrical utilities in this area is more difficult than other areas due to the limited space and existing building utilities. More resources will be needed to finish the installation.

  • Cable pulling is also more difficult due to the limited space. It was critical to do detailed planning to ensure the correct cables are installed in the correct sequence.

    RF Service Bldg & Computer Room

  • RF Transmitter connected to Sub-station. Instrumentation cable tray and power to be installed next.

  • Computer room installation is complete, all electrical utilities are complete.

There is a total of 89 power supply channels used for both Transport Lines


Nsls ii dipole magnets electrical circuit

NSLS-II Dipole Magnets Electrical Circuit

Dipole circuit is “folded” so there is not a large cabling loop.

Magnet circuit load =1.561 H + 2.404 Ω

Every Dipole magnet has a trim coil that will be powered. Small aperture magnets has a 1% trim, large aperture magnets have a 3% trim.

Note: Large aperture dipole trim power supply no longer needed. Adequate trim is provided by local trim coils.

Storage ring sextupole power supplies

Storage Ring Sextupole Power Supplies

Sextupole magnet circuits have either 6 or 2 magnets in series.

For the sextupole power supplies a global PLC is used to monitor all magnet thermal switches and then will shut down the correct sextupole power supply if an over-temperature condition occurs..

Transport line ps quadrupole with polarity reversal

Transport Line PS - Quadrupole With Polarity Reversal

This configuration is used for Quadrupole magnet circuits needing polarity reversal.

Standard commercial power converters are being used. Same ones as SR.

Two DCCTs are used, one for feedback and the other for redundant monitoring.

The 2nd DCCT is located on other side of reversing switch to confirm polarity.

These ps are designed to be installed in the same temperature controlled racks as SR.

PSIs, PSCs, AC input modules, instrumentation and controls are the same as SR.

Operation of polarity reversals will be done through PS controller.

There is a free wheeling diode on the output of the power converters

Transport line ps low power corrector ps

Transport Line PS Low Power Corrector PS

This ps uses the AC power amplifier which is the same basic model as the SR corrector model E.

The magnets are natural convection air cooled and do not have thermal switches.

The functions of the AC control module is incorporated into the power amplifier chassis.
