Dr Mike Seidel (PSI)
Eucard-2 (Enhanced European Coordination for Accelerator Research and Development) is an ongoing project for integrating research and development activities in the context of particle accelerators. EnEfficient (Energy Efficiency of Particle Accelerators) is one of six networking activities within the Eucard-2 program. Networks will primarily organize workshops and bring together the activities...
Mr Jens-Peter Jensen (DESY)
High energy research facilities like DESY and European XFEL have considerable power consumption. 85 % of the power consumption is electricity and 15 % heating. Electricity is used for the accelerator subsystems like rf power, cryogenic plant, magnets and cold water production. They produce waste heat which is often blown into the atmosphere without using it for heating and air conditioning....
Dr Morten Jensen (ESS)
The European Spallation Source ESS is a 2 GeV, 5 MW proton accelerator being designed with the start of construction planned for 2014 in Lund, Sweden. ESS is to provide a sustainable large-scale research facility. As such, ESS is focusing on reducing energy consumption by the use of high efficiency devices and by recovering waste heat. The largest section of the ESS linac, the high beta...
27. Energy reduction: example of a test facility upgrade with pulsed magnets instead of DC magnets, saving 90% of energy consumption
Dr Konstantinos Papastergiou (CERN)
CERN has many experimental areas connected to three synchrontrons PSB, PS and SPS. A supercycle is managing all users and each facility receives beams when its cycle is played. For example, the PS East area is the destination of the beam for 7 cycles over 42 of the supercycle. This facility is powered in DC. If we compare the time of the beam presence in the area to the powering time of the...
