      • PM problem noted: the data, although complete, does not display correctly in the PM viewer. Sandrine will look at data manually and Adriaan will correct the problem
      • after a discharge request from the PC, the PC fault and discharge request signals arrive out of sequence. According to Valerie this is understood (due to cable delays)
      • QPS_OK does not take into account the switches status allowing powering of the magnets with the switches open
    • Connection of the DC cables to the current leads has not happened yet. Will be done tomorrow at 7:30

  • RB.A78
    • QPS IST. All heaters charged (2 out of 700 needed intervention) Discharging started at 16:45 (will need 3-4hours to complete)

Powering Tests Sector 78 - Report 08/06/2007

Test Report of Friday 08/06/2007

  • RQ6.R7B1 and RQ6.R7B2
    • PCS.1: Sinus excitation at 1 and 10 mHz OK, the detector tripped for 200 mHz and could not be tested up to 1 Hz as expected. Hoewever, the test is considered as OK for the QPS experts since they gather enough information about the circuit and the dectector performance - TEST OK
    • PCS.2 (Extraction at 50 A): Detector tripped for ramp rates of 0.5, 0.4 and 0.3 A/s, it worked OK at 0.25 A/s. There was a problem in the transmission of the Post Mortem data, which did not reach the server the first time. The problem was fixed and no data was lost. The issue has not been understood yet - TEST OK
    • PCS.3 (Extraction at 100 A): Test OK
    • PCS.4 (Plateu at 200A): The detector tripped while the current was reaching the plateau due to the very well known issue with the d2I/dt2. Energy extraction worked ok - TEST NOT OK.

Powering Tests Sector 78 - Report 07/07/2007

Test Report of Thursday 07/06/2007

  • RQ6.R7:
    • PIC2 tests were blocked due to a damaged electronic card in the QPS controller which affected the creation of Post-Mortem data and the proper generation of interlock signals. The problem is understood now and the card changed. PIC2 will be completed today after the evening meeting.

  • RD2.L8:
    • The circuit was powered and the heater discharged at 200 A in order to check the new instrumentation implemented by AT/MEL. The system still needs some hardware work. The protection system is working properly. RD2.L8 stays blocked till Monday since priority is given to RQ6.
    • Antonio Perin presented the non-conformity in the internal cabling of the RD2 and RQ4 circuits in the DFBMA.L2 and DFBMA.L8 which may be the cause of the triple quench event of last week in the matching section.

  • RQ5.L8 and RQ4.L8
    • Liberated now for further powering after the Powering Subsector OFF functionality has been disabled in the ML8 powering subsector.
    • SPA from PIC in RQ4.L8 at nominal current: Test OK
    • SPA from PIC in RQ5.L8 at nominal current: Test OK

  • 80-120A correctors in Q4 and Q5:
    • Ramped all together after the meeting at nominal current and kept there for a couple of hours.

  • ElQA
    • MBB line to be retested with all the instrumentation connected.
    • MBA line: the test with the cryogening system and one QPS rack disconnected could not start today since the boiling test in the DFBAN is taking longer than expected. If the test fails, it will be repeated with 50% of the QPS racks in the MBB line (38 units) disconnected. If the test is still failing, all the QPS racks will be disconnected.

Planning for Friday 08/06/2007

  • RQ6.R7B1 and RQ6.R7B2
    • PCS.1-PCS.4 tests (Sinus at +/-10A, energy discharge at 50, 100 and 200A) from the CCC
    • Upgrade of the controller software after the test.

  • RQ4.L8 and RQ5.L8
    • Squeezing tests if possible.

  • 80-120A correctors Q4 and Q5:
    • PNO.4 test in battery for the seven circuits available.

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.

Powering Test Sector 78 - Evening Report 05/06/2007

Test Report Tuesday 05/06/2007

  • RQ4.L8
    • Special tests carried out by AB/PO from the tunnel in the converter in order to further study the fault in the FWD seen yesterday during the Fast Power Abort test (PNO.9)
    • While trying to ramp the converter up during the decay after a provoked fast power abort, the quench detector tripped and the quench heaters were fired. RQ5.L8 was going through the squeezing tests at the moment of the Q4 sporious quench, hence it performed a Fast Power Abort and its quench detector did not trip although it was at 3 kA.
    • Fast Power Abort from PIC Test repeated after diode was repaired (PNO.9). Test OK.

  • RQ5.L8
    • Manual Squeezing tests (PSQ). Test OK. It will not be considered as fully passed till it is done with the automatic function.

  • RQ6.R7B1 and RQ6.R7B2
    • PCS test up to +10 A OK. The quench detector performed OK at this current level. There is a problem in the supervision that is being fixed. The transfer functions measured by AB/PO match very well the ones measured during ElQA tests.
    • Due to a missunderstanding with MPP and HCC, the circuit was powered up to 60A in order to check the crowbar. At 53 A, as expected, the QPS provoked a FPA that opened the switches. The procedure has to be reviewed since, so far, powering above 10 A is not allowed before carrying out PIC2. HCC will find an agreement by tomorrow between Mr Circuit, AB/PO and MPP.

  • ElQA RB.A78
    • At 600 V, with all the DFB instrumentation except the lead heaters disconnected, the resistance of the leads was 346 and 260 Ohms for 5 minutes which is a very promising result. Tests will continue tomorrow when 1.9 K are expected.

Planning for Tomorrow 06/06/2007

  • RQ4.L8
    • Powering at nominal plateau for some hours
    • If functions are available: Squeezing test

  • RQ5.L8
    • After modification in the quench detector: Fast Power Abort at nominal current (PNO.9)
    • If functions are available: Squeezing test

  • RD2.L8
    • Once new instrumentation is operational: Power to nominal current step by step.

  • ElQA
    • Tests up to 1.9 V in RB.A78

Powering Tests Sector 78 - Afternoon Meeting 04/06/2007

Test Report Monday 04/06/2007

  • RQ5.L8: Powered up to nominal. During the first trial, the quench detector triggered at 27A. The magnet was powered at its nominal current for 4 hours. Tests successful. MPP is asked to give permission to increase the detection threshold to 100 mV (nominal) to carry out the Fast Power Abort test (PNO.9)

  • RQ4.L8:
    • Powered up to 250 A while RQ5.L8 was at nominal in order to check the integrity of the circuit. Test OK.
    • Once RQ5.L8 test was completed and with the agreement of MPP, RQ4.L8 was powered at different current levels up to its nominal current (250, 600, 2000 and 3610 A) and kept there for 20 minutes. Test OK.
    • Squeezing tests (PSQ). Test OK.
    • Fast Power Abort from PIC at nominal current (PNO.9). The circuit did not quench, however, AB/PO considers the test as failed due to the FWD circuit creating a fault. Under investigation. Test NOT OK.

  • RQ6.R7B1 and RQ6.R7B2
    • PCC Circuit Config tests going on. Some correction in the quench detectors have to be carried out. The noise level in the detector looks promising. Tests will continue tomorrow Tuesday.

  • RD2.R8
    • Amalia has analysed previous quenches in this magnet. None of them showed any effect on the level and temperatures in the DFBMA, hence they can conclude that the quench ocurred in the DFBMA but they cannot confirm its cause yet.
    • AB/CO has completed the interlock and circuit synoptics modifications needed for the new instrumentation in D2. Reiner will get the hardwire ready as soon as he finishes the correction in Q6.

  • Boil-off Tests
    • DFBAO Low Current Module: test completed, further studies need to be done in the He level gauges
    • DFBAO High Current Module: Test going out. They should be completed this evening. Promising results so far.
    • DFBAN being refilled, the calibration data is being checked.

Planning for Tuesday (05/06/2007)

  • RQ5.L8:
    • Squeezing Tests (PSQ)

  • RQ4.L8:
    • Run at nominal current for some hours
    • Repeat PNO.9 (FPA) if required by AB/PO

  • RQ4.L8 & RQ5.L8 & Correctors
    • Powering at nominal current together (?)

  • ElQA RB.A78
    • Tests will be restarted tomorrow Tuesday. First priority activity.

  • 60A Converter Type test
    • If possible in coordination with the ElQA.

Cooldown Sector 78

The commissioning programme on Q4, Q5, D2 and the associated correctors continued during this week. While the Q4, Q5 and D2 commissioning was completed, the commissioning of the 120 A correctors associated to these magnets could not be completed: some additional tuning of the software in the FGC remains to be done.

Yesterday (Thursday May30th) Q4, Q5, D2 were taken together to nominal current. At about 80% of the ramp, D2 quenched (5268 A). As expected, this caused the shutdown of the converters in the matching section and during the ramp down Q4 and Q5 also quenched. The data of this event is still being analysed.

The Electrical Quality Assurance team qualified the focusing and the defocusing quadrupole circuits and the matching section quadrupole Q6 at Point 7.

All the DFBs of the sector have been equipped with dry-air bags to ensure no condensation forms on the current leads and their chimneys.

Unfortunately, on Friday (June 1st) morning, the safety chain of cabinet was accidentally broken and the sector was disconnected from the pumping group. The cryo team is now busy recovering the situation to re-establish nominal temperature on the magnets for Monday morning.

Powering Tests 7-8 - Evening Meeting 01/06/2007

ACTIVITY OF FRIDAY

* Triple quench in the matching section (Q5, Q4 and D2) is still under investigation. The current leads have been excluded as possible quench origin. New hardware will be implemented on Monday in order to better analyse the future events. In principle the quench in Q4 was not induced by the previous quench in D2, the delay is too short for that.

* The circuits in the DFBMH have been released by ElQA and QPS.

* 1.9K in the arc are not granted for Monday

PLAN FOR TODAY MONDAY

TEAM 1 - RR77 (& CCC)

* Connection of the four 600A current leads of the DFBMH (RQ6.R7B1 and RQ6.R7B2).

* PCC-Circuit Configuration tests in the circuits of DFBMH. Remark: the PC Permit signal from PIC will have to forced since the DFBMH belongs to the A78 powering subsector

* PIC2 in the DFBMH circuits (CCC)

TEAM 2 - CCC

* Powering of RQ5.L8 and its correctors to nominal current in intermidiate steps. Run for some hours at nominal current for validating the splices. If the test is successful the detection threshold of its quench detector will be risen to its normal operational value (100 mV)

ElQA

* If cryogenic conditions are recovered (2.1 K) ElQA of the RB.A78 circuit will continue. First, all the electronics of the DFBAs will be disconnected. If the test still fails the QPS electronics in the tunnel will be disconnected. Reiner ask for one hour advice for carrying out the disconnection.
