HQM01 Test Results Preliminary

Coil parts & Instrumentation issues for LQ/HQ coils tested at Fermilab

HQ/LHQ coil parts task force

IntroductionCollect all issues related to HQ/LQ coil parts and instrumentation found at Fermilab before, during or after the test

Issues found before the test to be verified with the Lab fabricated or instrumented the coil

Keep updating the information on issues for old or forthcoming tests

LQ/HQ coils tested at FermilabLQS01aStrip heater damage, delamination on the inner coil surfaceLQS01bStrip heater damageLQS02Mixed up voltage tap wiringHQM01 (coil 12)Coil to IL pole piece shortHQM02 (coil 13)Coil to IL pole piece shortOL heater to coil shortHQM03 (coil 14) in preparation to electrical checkoutCoil to OL splice block shortWires not potted into the LE outer layer splice blockLQS01aStrip heater in coil 7 (PH07A01) was lost during the test Heater was connected in parallel with other heaters, HFU decay profile slightly changed but was not noticed during the testMonitoring of HFU discharge was implemented after this test

PH07A01 heater was repaired after the testExposed area was filled with Stycast and 5-mil Kapton on top of it and cured with pressure. Damaged area of the heater was replaced with a 10-cm long copper wireThe same heater was lost again in LQS01b

HQM02 coil parts & instrumentation issues Pre-test electrical check-out: short found between the coil and the IL LE pole pieceShort location in A10B10 segment, close to B10Inner and outer layer pole pieces at LE are in contact Small axial gap between the LE and RE pole pieces

Inner layerOuter layerHQM02 coil parts & instrumentation issues Both strip heaters on the outer layer developed short to coil after 3rd quench at 4.6 K Significant increase of the quench current from ~14 kA to ~15.7 kAStrip heaters isolated and removed from the magnet protection

Was is safe to continue testing ?Symmetric grounding of both the magnet and strip heaters, as well as 10 mOhm dump resistor should reduce the maximum voltage drop across the coilSeveral manual trips and heater provoked quenches performed to analyze noise in signals Strain gauge data, especially from the bullets, were investigatedQuench current was gradually increased up to 14 kA before quench training was continued

HQM02 coil parts & instrumentation issues When exactly the short developed ?Active ground fault protection system tripped only after the quench HFU discharge plot for quench #3 indicated that short developed after the quench was detected (t=0)
