Poster Accelerator Control 11- Poster Session


Oriol Serres (CELLS-ALBA)


The ALBA Synchrotron is a 3Gev, third generation synchrotron light source located near Barcelona (Spain). The accelerators are typically operated 6000 h a year, with closed to 80% of the time dedicated to provide beam for users. In addition to ensure a successful routine operation, the operators develop Python scripts and GUIs to simplify the Control Room procedures. These scripts are mainly focus on automatizing routine actions like checking machine parameters after a shut-down, opening/closing IDs, sequential actions to switch off the accelerators when going into a shut-down, among others. This poster will present a summary of these scripts
