The talk will summarize the findings of the consolidation program implemented on the PS main units, with emphasis on critical aspects which may affect the operation of the PS for up to 10 additional years. An overview of the spare magnet situation for the whole PS complex will also be briefly given, together with a list of proposed actions to complete and consolidate the spare magnet availability.

The 744 main dipole and 216 main quadrupole magnets constitute the bending and focusing system for the SPS ring. These magnet families are among the most populated of the SPS complex with the lowest ratio of spares to magnets in operation. After more than 35 years of operation these magnets need particular attention. Therefore, analysis is continuously performed to detect issues which may lead...

During the 2008 run and 2008-9 shutdown several beam instrumentation systems have been upgraded, tested and targeted to be operationally deployed in 2009. In addition, the BI group has been re-organized following the 2009 restructuring. This presentation will present the agreed renovation plan, the corresponding progress and the BI organization put in place. It will also present possible...
