Accelerator Simulation and Operation Via. Identical Operational Interfaces

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

The CEBAF accelerator contains approximately 2500 power supplies, 340 klystrons, and 800 beam monitors. The operation of such a complex machine requires a control system which can provide a high degree of automation with strong support by simulation and modeling programs.\nWe present the architecture and first results of a control system which allows one the use of identical operation procedures and interfaces for operation of the real accelerator and high-level accelerator simulation programs. The interfaces were developed using TACL (Thaumaturgic Automated Control Logic) control software, developed at CEBAF for accelerator control. This setup provides the capability to: (1) test and ... continued below

The interfaces were developed using TACL (Thaumaturgic Automated Control Logic) control software, developed at CEBAF for accelerator control. This setup provides the capability to: (1) test and debug the various operation procedures before the completion of the accelerator, (2) execute machine simulations under realistic environmental conditions, and (3) preview and evaluate the effectiveness of operational procedures during run time. The optimized simulation program adds only two seconds to
