Introduction 1
Introduction (1) Test

  • Follow-up of BCC from 18 October 2012

    • Preliminary conclusions from that BCC:

      • Simple stripping foil test at start of L4T feasible, but half-sector test in L4Z problematic (losses due to implementation within final L4Z layout)

      • Installation in L4T line (after hor. bending) to be studied  see presentation Veliko

Introduction 2
Introduction (2) Test

  • Extremely compact and complex section, combining equipment from TE/ABT, EN/STI, BE/BI, TE/EPC, TE/VSC, TE/MPE.

  • Main motivations for sector test have been laid out in EDMS 1224575.

What can be tested elsewhere
What can be tested elsewhere Test

  • Integration issues, repair and intervention scenarios (incl. stripping foil exchange) with mechanical test stand

  • Stripping foil lifetime, stripping foil control and instrumentation including optimisation of screen and camera system, stripping foil efficiency and emittance growth with different foil types/thicknesses with stripping foil installation at start of L4T

What could be tested in addition 1
What could be tested in addition (1) Test

  • BSW3+4

    • Powering and control of half of the chicane magnets

    • Current stability and interlocking

  • Stripping foil

    • More precise stripping efficiency measurement of H0 and H-

    • Interlocking of foil position

  • H0/H- dump

    • Aperture check

    • Temperature cross-check with simulated values  refine cooling requirements

    • Analysis of SiC material after removal (micro-cracks etc.; novel material!)

    • Interlocking (temperature and pressure drop – define operational thresholds)

BCC 22 April 2013

What could be tested in addition 2
What could be tested in addition (2) Test

  • Special BLMs

    • Diamond BLMs (?) to measure secondaries close to H0/H- dump; evaluate operational conditions for foil degradation measurement and fast losses

  • H0/H- current monitor: new development!

    • General operational check incl. for example secondary emission suppression

    • Sensitivity check for H0 and H-; comparison to theory

    • Aperture check

    • Influence on measurement if beam passes besides the monitor (simulate circulating beam)?

    • Interlocking – essential for dump protection

  • Interlock system test for part of PSB injection (BIS + SIS)

  • Specific applications

BCC 22 April 2013

To be sorted out
To be sorted out… Test

  • Planning

    • In parallel with Linac4 commissioning

    • Provide in time equipment, controls, applications

  • Location of control equipment, transformer etc.

  • Cabling

  • Support structures, special beam pipe connections…

  • Temporary downstream installation of dump (LBE/LBS line dump?) – could it be reused for L4T commissioning?

  • Water cooling of dump(s)

BCC 22 April 2013

Conclusions Test

  • Half-injection-section test would be extremely beneficial

    • From technical point of view for each sub-system

    • For risk reduction

    • For reduction of commissioning time for Linac4-to-PSB connection

  • It seems feasible to provide the required equipment for start of 2016 (Linac4 reliability run), but infrastructure availability to be checked

    • Test should happen first part of 2016 to be able to react to potential lessons learnt…

  • Installation should not perturb too much Linac4 commissioning
