Operational monitoring of the CEBAF RF system

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

An EPICS-based control interface has been developed which enables effective monitoring of the 338 independent RF systems that drive CEBAF`s superconducting cavities. Visual screens allow the operator to quickly identify cavities that have faulted, or which are operating out of specification. These screens allow the operator easy access to automated routines for clearing faults, routines for documenting and tracking hardware problems, and expert screens for immediate correction of RF problems. The combination of visual screens and automated scripts has greatly decreased the time required to identify and recover from RF problems, significantly increasing operational uptime. 2 refs., 1 fig., 1 ... continued below
