Diagnosis of MB.A45 circuit shorted to ground - Courtesy of D.Bozzini & J.P.Tock

This morning MCS has open the diode box of the dipole 3186. AT/MEL has connected an ohmmeter during the operation to follow the status of the short. At the time of opening the big flange of the diode box the resistance to ground started to change (increase). After the opening it could be possible to first see a quite big quantity of dust on the diode metallic box and second some big pieces of welding residuals.

After having disconnected the diode at the level of the half moons the short disappeared (infinite resistance) and in at the same time some debris felled down from the top part of the half moons. As you can see in the attached pictures the size of one of this residual fits perfectly between the live part and the metallic body of the bus bar duct. In addition in one picture you will see a carbon trace on the G10 insulating piece. This could be provoked by the current of 1A we injected to better localize the fault position flowing through the debris supported onto the G10 piece.

The system will be set back to the requested pressure condition (6 bars in the magnets, 2.2 bars in the DFBA's - which should be achieved by Tuesday 3rd July), when the ELQA-TP4B qualification of this faulty circuit will be repeated.
