Powreing Test Sector 7-8 - Report 06/06/07

Test Report Wednesday 06/06/2007

  • RQ4.L8
    • Manual Squeezing test (PSQ). Test OK. (The test will be considered as fully passed only once automatic function is used)
    • When Squeezing was finished, the magnet was ramped to nominal current (3610 A) and kept there for "endurance test"; after one hour, the B2 converter tripped and a FPA was initiated: analysis of the PM signals was indicating an external interlock alarm - red emergency button pressed. Nobody was in the area at that moment.
    • The two converters were ramped back to nominal and kept there; after three hours, the same trip as before was experienced on B2 and the FPA initiated. The circuit was blocked for powering.
    • Further investigations showed that the two trips were provoked by a mispositioned pin in the connector on the emergency red button. Already fixed by PO.

  • RQ6.R7B1 and RQ6.R7B2
    • PCC completed by PO and QPS in the tunnel of point 7.
    • PIC2 CRYO-OK passed on RQ6.R7B1, RQ6.R7B2, RCBH6.R7B2 and RCBV6.R7B1.
    • Remaining steps of PIC2 passed on RCBH6.R7B2. Not possible to continue with the others due to a communication problem with QPS detectors; a manual reset in UA83 is needed.

Planning for Thursday 07/06/2007

  • RQ6.R7B1 and RQ6.R7B2
    • Complete PIC2 on the two 600 A circuits and the corrector RCBV6.R7B1
    • PCS.1, PCS.2, PCS.3, PCS.4 (Ramp rate 0.2-0.5 A/s)

  • 600 A correctors
    • Cable connection on the circuits released by ElQA (after verification by PO of the condemnation of those converters)

  • 80 A correctors of Q4 and Q5: "Endurance test" after Reiner's intervention

  • ElQA tests:
    • Further investigations on RB circuit/instrumentation

  • ML8: once D2 is available, special cycle with D2, Q4 and Q5.

  • Powering of RQ4.L8 and RQ5.L8 to validate the FGC software update

  • Boil-off tests on DFBAN in the morning.
