Re: Improved performance after MD and TS?

If the question is about performance perhaps it should have been about any premature end to a fill, not just quenches. Yes, I'm interested in the causes for a fill to be abandoned and the beam having to be dumped/quenched. Quenched and dumpled are the same thing, correct? If you look at slide 15 in...

Re: Improved performance after MD and TS?

Is that enough detail?? Hey, thanks for the useful info. At the Tevatron, they've managed to limit 1 quench to around 20 fills. Do you know what the figure is for the LHC and if they have a realistic chance of reducing it? They were also managing to get remarkable fill times of 70% so I'm curious t...

Improved performance after MD and TS?

This coming Sat, the LHC will be back in fills for physics, so afer the technical stop and machine development phase should be expect any improvement in the performance of the machine? I've also noticed that the plan was to get to 900 bunches with 75ns, whereas they were using 50ns so will they stop...
