BIA’s Director Review, September 17 2010

Accelerator Improvements FY11-16

Fulvia Pilat


Accelerator projects

Accelerator Projects

  • A list of accelerator improvements through FY16 has been presented and discussed at the recent Operations Review [ref. Arne Freyberger’s talk]

  • Will present and use this as a basis for this discussion

  • One more project (upgrade of chicanes to allow larger path-length adjustment capacity) identified and added

  • Discussion of what could be funded through BIA to benefit from the overall Program oversight.


List of accelerator projects

List of Accelerator Projects

Chicanes Upgrade estimate: 650 K$


Injector upgrade

Injector Upgrade

Upgrade the 65 MeVinjector to a 125 MeVinjector compatible with 12GeV CEBAF.

Optimize warm RF and 1 cryomodule section for the new 200 kV capable gun.

Inj. Upgrade - Cryomodule (R100)OPS1.5 M$FY11-12

Inj. Upgrade - Build 1/4 CryomoduleAIP 2.0 M$FY11-13

Inj. Upgrade – IntegrationOPS3.3 M$FY11-13

Mission Critical


Gradient maintenance

Gradient Maintenance

C50OPS~10M$FY13-16

RF power upgradeAIP~2M$FY13-15


Diagnostics improvements

Diagnostics Improvements

  • In general, need to strengthen CEBAF instrumentation

  • Instrumentation for 12 GeV copy of 6 GeV

  • No formal instrumentation group in Operations

  • ODR for non-invasive beam size monitoring

  • improved diagnostics on beam transport to the high power dump

  • upgrade to digital imaging

  • Projects:

  • Optical Diffraction Radiation DiagnosticsAIP 220KFY12-13

  • BSY Diagnostics suiteAIP 67KFY11

  • Upgrade imaging diagnosticsAIP 250KFY16


Global event link system

Global event link system

CEBAF does not have an event link system, machine completely asynchronous

Exploit the installed high sample rate control electronics

(digital LLRF)

develop additional high sampling rate systems (BPM, C50 LLRF)

develop an analysis system, data visualization software,

archive systems and event trigger system to create high speed

snapshots of CEBAF accelerator control system.

AIP ~700K$FY14-16


Chicanes upgrade motivation

Chicanes Upgrade - motivation

Mike Tiefenback

  • The acceleration passes in the CEBAF must be held synchronous, compensated against daily and seasonal variations in the temperature of the beam enclosure and ground motion

  • As the beam energy was increased from 4 GeV to 6 GeV, some of the time-of-flight

  • (or “path length”) adjustment chicanes became power-supply limited. Path length control was supplemented by adjusting the beam trajectory in the recirculation arcs.

  • Chicane path length control is further diminished in the 12 GeV upgrade. The baseline plan was to forego upgrading the path length chicane dipoles with the beam energy and adjust the master oscillator frequency as the principal accommodation for variations in circulation path length. This is not sufficient due to arc to arc variations ~10o.

  • Maintaining the accelerator “phase length” rather than time-of-flight restores correction capability but involves changes in the physical location of the recirculation arcs due to reduced chicane delays. Not practical to move and resurvey magnets 2-4 times a year

  • .

  • Multiple control options exist satisfying the requirements with a differing mix of capital cost,

  • operational time consumed, and technical or schedule risk.

  • Doubling the power supply capacity of the path length chicanes provides sufficient margin to cover historically experienced variability


Chicanes implementation

Chicanes implementation

  • Nine 600A, 110V power supplies at $50K each, includes spare. All but arc 1. $450K total

  • 2.5” H steel on ten BY magnets in arcs 5-9. $100K

  • 3mm shims for eight BW magnets in hand

  • check cooling for arcs 1-4 at 1000 A/cm2. Likely OK as other labs have run 1600 A/cm2.

  • Engineering labor, overhead, etc. $100K

  • Estimated total $650K

Accelerator projects and 12gev

Accelerator Projects and 12GeV

  • Injector Upgrade:

    • R100: Critical for 12 GeV, project well underway

    • 200keV Gun: Not needed until 12GeV parity experiments

    • Warm RF mods: Not needed until 12GeV parity exp.

    • New ¼ cryo: Not needed until 12GeV parity exp.

  • Dog-Leg Chicane Upgrade:

    • Critical for 12GeV

  • Gradient Maintenance:

    • Critical for 12GeV FY15 and beyond, Accelerator Division has a positive track record of managing Gradient Maintenance (e.g. C50 program)

  • Diagnostics Improvements: Not critical for 12GeV

  • Global Event Timing: Not Critical for 12GeV
