The hump is maybe gone!!!!!

from todays meeting:
"Since the start-up we did not see any sign of the hump (for the first time)
...but we do not know what has changed that made it disappear
Monitoring to detect any change
"

Wow, now that's a pleasant surprise. But it's always a little worrying if a problem you had suddenly goes away without explanation, it might come back equally unexpectedly.

One of suspects was a faulty power source. If it was, it might have been replaced during maintenance checks for being out of specifications.
