Session 3: LHC Hardware Performance Sessions 3 & 4: LHC Hardware Performance


Felix Rodriguez Mateos


From individual system tests and commissioning after LS1 up to operation with beam, the talk will start with a quick overview on the main phases that the LHC magnet circuits have experienced since the last Chamonix meeting. The main faults and events along the 2015 beam operation will be reported and classified according to system, frequency and impact to downtime. The systems and aspects covered are the following: electrical integrity on cold parts and warm cabling, energy extraction, quench heater power supplies and DFB instrumentation. Other systems also pertaining to the LHC magnet circuits will be covered elsewhere. A discussion will follow on the forecast of actions on the related hardware with an emphasis on machine availability.
