  The SPS delivers slow extracted proton and heavy ion spills of several seconds to the North Area fixed target experiments with a very high duty factor. Reduced machine reproducibility due to magnetic history and power supply ripples on the main circuits lead however to frequent degradation of the spill duty factor. In this paper, the measured effect of the SPS magnetic history on spill quality and principal machine parameters is presented. Another detailed measurement campaign was aimed at characterising the frequency content and response of the spill to noise on the main power supplies ripples. The main findings of this study will also be reported. Finally, simulations of possible improvements based on the data acquired are discussed, as well as an extrapolation to the possible spill quality after the implementation of the improvements.

  The J-PARC Main Ring (MR) is being upgraded to improve its beam power to the design goal of 750 kW. One important way is to reduce the repetition period from 2.48 s to 1.3 s so that the beam power can be nearly doubled. We need to improve the septum magnets for fast extraction. We are improving the magnets and their power supplies. The present magnets which are conventional type have problem in durability of septum coil by its vibration, and large leakage field at the flange of the beam duct. The new magnets are eddy current type. The eddy current type does not have septum coil, but has a thin plate. We expect that there is no problem in durability, we can construct the thin septum plate, the leakage field can be reduced. The output of the present power supply are pattern current which of flat top is 10 ms width, the new one is short pulse which of one is 10 us. The short pulse consists of 1st and 3rd higher harmonic. We can expect that the flatness and reproducibility of flat top current can be improved. The calorific power can be also reduced. This paper will report the performance of the power supply and its magnetic field with the eddy septum magnet systems.

  J-PARC is the multipurpose research institutes. 10 years have passed since the user operation started. We have been considering the upgrades for the future and the target beam powers for 3 GeV rapid cycling synchrotron (RCS) and 30GeV Main ring (MR) are 1.5MW and 1.3MW. To achieve a 1.5MW of RCS output beam power, increasing the number of Linac proton particles is necessary. For accelerating such higher beam current, the rf systems in the RCS need to upgrade an accelerating voltage and to take account of heavier beam loading. In case of the MR, increasing the number of proton is not appropriate from the viewpoint of space charge effects. We chose to shorten the MR cycle time. The required RF voltages become almost double. All nine systems have been replaced with the higher accelerating gradient RF systems using a newly developed magnetic alloy material. At present, the proton beam of 470kW is being delivered with a cycle time of 2.48s. Beam powers of MR will plan to aim first at 750KW after replacing the magnet power supplies. But, to realize a 1.3MW beam power, upgrading the RF power sources will be necessary. We present the ring RF system status and their upgrades for the future.

  The J-PARC RCS employes Magnetic Alloy (MA) loaded cavities and rf power is fed by vacuum tubes in push-pull operation. The multi-harmonic rf driving and the multi-harmonic beam loading compensation are realized due to the broadband characteristics of the MA. However, the push-pull operation has disadvantages in the multi-harmonics. An unbalance of the anode voltage swing remarkably appears at very high intensity beam acceleration. In order to avoid the unbalance, a single-ended MA cavity is considered for the RCS beam power upgrade because no unbalance arises intrinsically. We will describe the conceptual design of the single-end MA cavity for the RCS upgrade.

  To further improve the performance and reliability of the quench detection system (QDS) for main quadrupole magnets in the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), there is a planned upgrade of the system during the long shutdown period of the LHC in 2019-2020. While improving the already existing functionalities of quench detection for quadrupole magnets and field-bus data acquisition, the enhanced QDS will incorporate new functionalities to strengthen and improve the system operation and maintenance. The new functionalities comprise quench heater supervision, interlock loop monitoring, power cycling possibility for the whole QDS and its data acquisition part, monitoring and synchronization of trigger signals, and monitoring of power supplies. In addition, the system will have two redundant power supply feeds. Given that the enhanced QDS units will replace the existing QDS units in the LHC tunnel, the units will be exposed to elevated levels of ionizing radiation. Therefore, it is necessary to design a radiation tolerant detection system. In this work, an overview of the design solution for such enhanced QDS is presented.

In the past year, Control System Studio (CS-Studio) has become the predominant graphical user interface tool at ReA3, the 3 MeV/u rare isotope beam Reaccelerator at Michigan State University's National Superconducting Cyclotron Laboratory. CS-Studio is a set of control system interface tools that include operator interfaces, history plots, an alarm handler, save/restore, scanning, and more. Becoming an effective user of these tools takes considerable time and training. This contribution will describe the challenges and strategies for training operators on the general use of the CS-Studio tools. It will describe the use of a simulated user interface environment for training operators at any time without affecting the operating facility.

  This contribution deals with the topic of slow extraction spill quality characterization based on the measurements performed at GSI SIS-18. The sensitivity of the spill to power supply ripples are studied by introducing external ripples. An estimate of sources of inherent power supply ripples along with ripple magnitude are thus obtained. Spill characterization in time and frequency domain are discussed and exemplified by a typical spill and the differences from an ideal or Poisson spill. An appropriate spill characterization aims to provide a suitable abstraction for communication about the spill quality requirements between accelerator operations and users.

  In 2017, sixty-four pules magnets were installed in the KEK e+/e LINAC for simultaneous injection to four different rings. Since each ring requires different injection energy, magnetic field in the LINAC has to be changed shot by shot (every 20 ms) according to the destination of the beam. To realize such operation, a PXI express based new control system was installed. Each unit, which consists of an event receiver board, a DAC board, and a ADC board, can set and monitor output current up to 8 pulsed power supply in 16 bit resolution. The timing and control system are integrated in that of the LINAC by using Micro-Research Finland's PXI event receiver board. In terms of software, Windows 8.1 and LabVIEW 2016 were mainly adopted to control the hardware. EPICS channel access (CA) protocol was used to communicate with operator's interface panels. In addition to real-time monitoring by EPICS CA and logging by CSS archiver every 10 s, data are logged every shot (every 20 ms) in the text file together with timestamp, shot ID and destination. At present, thirteen units are stably in operation to control 64 magnets. Further installation of the system is planned in 2018.

  Pulse magnets are used in storage ring injection kickers. The waveform of the the four kickers have strong relation with injection efficiency. A slightly offset of waveform may cause the four kickers mismatched, which would lead to storaged beam loss and decrease injection efficiency. In order to define the peak value and timing of the half-sine waveform which has noises interfering diagnosis, a curve-fitting method was introduced to monitor and fine-tuning the waveform. The waveforms' data are also archived for reference in case of replacing power supplies. By using this method, it helps to retain a consistent injection efficiency after the power supplies maintenance or replacement.

  To find out abnormal situations of the machine for preventive maintenance or machine trip tracking or instability source diagnosis, a large amount of operating data in an accelerator is thus can be used to build a series data analysis program. When the archived data is classified accordingly, the standard deviation (STD), peak-to-peak value and other statistic indexes within the inspection time zone by the belonging families can be used to point out the especially abnormal signals. The analysis program adopts the techniques of parallel calculation and memory optimization to greatly reduce the time for data transmission and analysis and also displays the correlation signals to opera-tors for deeper analysis. This paper illustrated a simple yet effective method for quickly identifying a not-so-obscure hardware issue by simply using a personal computer (PC).

The upgrade (APS-U) of the APS storage ring requires more than 1200 bipolar power supplies. Based on the performance requirement, the power supplies can be divided into two categories: fast bipolar power supplies for fast correctors and slow bipolar power supplies for trim coils and slow correctors. The common requirement of the power supplies is a bipolar output current up to ±15 A. The main difference is that the fast corrector power supplies require a small-signal bandwidth of 10 kHz. A prototype DC/DC power converter utilizing a MOSFET H-bridge circuit with a 500 kHz PWM was successfully developed through the R&D program, achieving the required bandwidth with less than 3-dB attenuation for a signal 0.5% of ±15 A. After the successful R&D program, the preliminary designs were performed to further improve the performance and to finalize the schematics, the PCB layouts, and the power supply constructions. The two types of the power supplies share the majority of the designs and features, with minor differences for the different bandwidth requirement. This paper presents the preliminary design, the key power supply functions and features, and the test results.

  Diversified Technologies, Inc. (DTI) has developed a unique short pulse klystron modulator system for the Compact Linear Advanced Research Accelerator (CLARA) Project at Daresbury Laboratory. One unit has been delivered and three more are on contract. This system is based on the combination of a high voltage solid-state switch, with a conventional 1:7 pulse transformer, and a passive pulse corrector with automated adjustment. This unique passive circuitry delivers the extremely flat output pulse required for advanced accelerator applications. The CLARA modulators share design elements with previous DTI modulators which provides both a lower cost and easier to maintain system. The modulators are designed to pulse 80 MW-class klystrons at an avg power of 250 kW and provides adjustable high efficiency operation in the 45 kV to 450 kV range for currents up to 545 A and pulse lengths of 1.5 to 4.0 µs. One key objective of modulator development is optimization of voltage flatness (± 0.02 %), stability (± 0.05 %), and reproducibility (± 0.05 %).

  The ALS-U project is an upgrade to the existing Advanced Light Source at Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory to a diffraction limited light source. To be able to achieve the small horizontal emittance of the ALS-U, the three bend achromats in the ALS will be replaced with nine bend achromats. Because the lifetime of the ALS-U beam will be significantly reduced, the plan is to use a swap out injection scheme between the storage ring and a new accumulator ring. The present plan is to use individual power supplies for each magnet in the storage ring, and series connected magnet strings for the accumulator ring. The sheer number of supplies needed, along with the tighter stability requirements for the ALS-U, is demanding in terms of the power supply requirements for stability and reliability. This paper will discuss the ALS-U magnet power supply requirements, and possible options to meet them.

  In the frame of the Facility for Antiproton and Ion Research (FAIR) 9 bunch compressor RF stations were ordered for the first stage of realization of the SIS100 synchrotron. For RF gymnastics referred to as bunch rotation, one RF station has to provide a sudden rise in gap voltage of up to 40 kVp within less than 30 µs. The system is designed for a maximum RF burst of 3 ms per second. The RF frequency will be pre-selectable between 310 kHz and 560 kHz at a harmonic number of h=2 with respect to the beam. Compressed bunches with a peak current > 150 A and a width < 50 ns are the goal. For this purpose, a 1.218 m long cavity was designed using iron-based magnetic alloy cores. Variable vacuum capacitors are attached for tuning. The cavity is driven by a cross-coupled push-pull tetrode amplifier. This scheme minimizes the influence of the tetrode's DC current at the working point to the cores. The energy for the pulsed system is stored in a relatively small capacitor bank which will be charged semi-continuously and a voltage-stabilizing device is added. Cavity and power amplifier were realized by AURION Anlagentechnik GmbH ' the power supply unit is designed and built by OCEM Power Electronics.

  For the Facility for Antiproton and Ion Research (FAIR) 14 ferrite loaded accelerating RF stations are planned for the first stage of realization of the SIS100 synchrotron. Each RF station has to provide a total peak gap voltage of up to 20 kVp in CW operation - tuneable in the range of 1.1 MHz up to 3.2 MHz to allow ion beam acceleration and beam gymnastics at different harmonic numbers and energy levels in the new facility. Each RF station consists of a tuneable ferrite cavity, a single ended tetrode amplifier and a dedicated power supply and control unit (PSU) ' including two bias current supplies for cavity- and control-grid(G1)-circuit-tuning. The ferrite cavity is based on the SIS18 cavity concept but has to provide a 1.25 times higher gap voltage of 20 kVp over a total length of 3 meters. The realization is done by a consortium consisting of RI Research Instruments GmbH as consortium leader and manufacturer of the cavity, Ampegon PPT GmbH (for the tetrode amplifier) and Ampegon AG (for the power supply unit). In this contribution, the system design is discussed, and commissioning results are presented. All main parameters are achieved with the RF station described.

  The Collector Ring (CR), a storage ring intended to perform efficient cooling of secondary beams, is under construction at GSI in the scope of the FAIR project. The RF system of the CR has to provide a frequency range from 1.1 to 1.5 MHz and pulsed gap voltages of up to 200 kVp (0.2 to 1 Hz, max. 10-3 duty cycle) and up to 10 kVp in CW operation. Five identical RF stations will be built. Each RF station consists of an inductively loaded cavity, a tetrode based power amplifier, a semiconductor driver amplifier, a switch mode power supply and two digital feedback loops. The main components of the RF station are designed, built and commissioned in close collaboration between GSI and three companies: RI Research Instruments GmbH, Ampegon PPT GmbH and OCEM Energy Technology SRL. In 2016, the first of five RF stations has been integrated at GSI. In 2017 the system was successfully commissioned to demonstrate that all envisaged parameters have been achieved. This contribution will present the requirements imposed the system, the principal design of the overall system as well as of its key components, and the results of the commissioning of the first RF station.

    NSRRC, Hsinchu, Taiwan
 
  After an actual operation of the phase-shifted magnet's power supply was conducted, it was found that the currents in the two modules of magnets would be coupled each other. In order to solve this mutual coupling current, a decoupling controller is designed. From the experiment results indicate that it does not only solve the issue of coupling current but also shorten the rising time of the power supply current. This helps to increase the power supply bandwidth.

  In this paper we describe the modifications of power supplies needed to operate the storage ring with a low momentum compaction factor (low alpha) to generate short x-ray pulses. This design includes an external polarity reversal circuit in quadrupole and sextupole magnet power supplies. The polarity reversal circuit contains four relay module where each relay can receive signals from the D-type analog interface. The power supply control system must be enhanced to switch output polarity. The operating principle and analyses of polarity reversal are discussed in more detail. Finally, a prototype polarity reversal circuit with 30 V, 250 A and 7.5 kW output power is implemented in the laboratory to verify the expected performance for the TPS low alpha operation.

  In this study, a high step down DC-DC converter was successfully integrated using switch capacitor and isolated transformer techniques. Switching capacitor techniques has use of capacitor parallel energy storage and series release of the way to improve the voltage conversion ratio. In addition, the output voltage ripple will be smaller due to the input current being continuous, the inductance is an element to prevent a surge current. The isolated transformer techniques has use of inductor coil turns ratio to achieve high conversion ratio. But, the leakage inductor and parasitic capacitance on the power switch will be resonant to generate a surge voltage spike when the power switch S is turned off. So that, additional a passive clamp circuit, energy of leakage inductor will be recycled to clamp capacitor and voltage stress of main power switch.

  The new 20 kA, 80 V power supply for the main magnet of the 520 MeV H Cyclotron at TRIUMF was awarded to OCEM. It has replaced the original system (commissioned in 1976) based on a series pass regulator. The final acceptance tests have demonstrated the com-pliance with the project specifications, especially for the high current stability required for the Cyclotron operation. The current stability is ±5 ppm, including current ripple, for a period of more than 8 hours of continuous operation. In addition, the magnetic field can be further stabilized us-ing feedback of a flux loop signal. OCEM designed the power supply to use the third gen-eration of Function Generator/Controller (FGC3) control electronics from CERN. This was chosen to obtain the high current stability required by TRIUMF. This collaboration was facilitated through a Knowledge Transfer agreement between CERN and OCEM. The power supply commis-sioning has been performed as a collaboration between OCEM, TRIUMF and CERN. This paper describes the topology of the power supply, the control electronics, the high-precision current measure-ment system and the associated software as well as the commissioning results carried out with the magnet.

THPAL082 Development of a New Modular Switch Using a Next-Generation Semiconductor pulsed-power, ISOL, timing, kicker 3841

  An ultra-high-speed short pulse switch for high power have been developed by using SIC - MOSFET which is one of next generation semiconductors. Semiconductor switches using SIC-MOSFETs are expected to replace the thyratron, and they are composed of circuits in which many semiconductor switches are multiplexed in series and parallel for high power. Semiconductor switches using SIC-MOSFETs are expected to replace the thyratron, and they are also designed by connecting many semiconductor switches in parallel-series. To realize a low switching noise, it is common to form a symmetrical circuit. However, as the number of parallel connections increases, the circuit length between input and output becomes longer, so the output waveform is distorted due to any timing jitter or level fluctuation. Therefore, we propose a radially symmetric type of a module switch which does not cause level fluctuation due to the timing jitter by equalizing the circuit length independently of the number of semiconductor switches. The design and preliminary test results of two types of switch circuits, radially symmetric type and line symmetric type are presented here.

  The Mexican Particle Accelerator Community is currently designing the first Mexican RF eLINAC that will have three beamlines at 10, 60 and 100 MeV. In this work, we present an optimized design in terms of field quality and production cost for the 5 T/m normal conducting quadrupoles of the 10-MeV beamline. Several candidate materials for the yoke were studied based on their availability and machinability, with the aim to optimize in-house production cost (Mexico) while restricting a low multipole content.

Hefei Advanced Light Source (HALS) is the fourth-generation radiation light source that is being pre-researched in China. Ultra-low emittance of the beam requires higher performance of power supply system. We designed a fast correcting power supply for the beam measurement needs. We adopted the all-digital method, the current closed-loop feedback used the AD7766 with 24-bit resolution as its A/D converter. And we added the corresponding constant temperature control, chain protection, etc. The small-signal frequency response of this system can reach more than 5kHz. The detail design scheme is described in this paper.
