Diagnostic, Post mortem, Root Cause, Fault Analysis, etc.
Dipole magnets at ISIS are utilised in the Synchrotron particle accelerator to steer the 800MeV proton beam and maintain a circular trajectory within the 163m ring. Such is the importance of these magnets that failure of a single Dipole terminates the beam current, resulting in costly machine downtime. ISIS currently employs a simplistic form of condition monitoring to assess magnet health...
The Beijing Electron Positron Collider II (BEPCII) is a double-ring e+e- collider running in the tau-charm energy region (Ecm = 2.0-4.6 GeV), with a design luminosity of 1 × 1033 cm-2s-1 at the beam energy of 1.89 GeV, which had been achieved on April 5th 2016. The failure analysis system of the BEPCII has two subsystems to get the designated signals when the beam loss: the multiple channel...
TRIUMF uses the TapRooT® System for failure investigation. TapRooT is a systematic process for finding the root causes of problems: major accidents, everyday incidents, minor near-misses, quality issues, human errors, etc
In my talk I’ll introduce the TapRooT system and illustrate its use for the investigation of failures.
