Specification Discussion Topics :-

 

System

Power degradation – how much can be tolerated as tubes age?

Gradient & phase control – is it required, if so how Strathclyde?

Resonance Control – how?

Phase scanning during beam set up?

 

RF Distribution

Cavities with Fixed phase angle to provide 98% acceleration – What phase angle to use?

Testing at MTA ? – do we want/need to do this?

Procurement should we start process now? – dummy loads, hybrid splitters

Flexible coax lines to resolve any alignment problems.

LLRF

Mag Field Analysis – new analysis suggests no problem at 8 gauss
