4 LBNL MICE VC August Spectrometer Solenoid Update  Steve Virostek  LBNL Magnet Training (cont’d) Numerous issues have arisen during the training that delayed progress but, for the most part, have been solved Numerous issues have arisen during the training that delayed progress but, for the most part, have been solved These include: LHe supply, level gauges wiring problem, cold mass leaks to atmosphere, inadvertent quench triggered by QP system, circuit breaker trips, power supply stability These include: LHe supply, level gauges wiring problem, cold mass leaks to atmosphere, inadvertent quench triggered by QP system, circuit breaker trips, power supply stability The most severe problem was a burnout of one of the six high-current HTS leads The most severe problem was a burnout of one of the six high-current HTS leads Numerous issues have arisen during the training that delayed progress but, for the most part, have been solved Numerous issues have arisen during the training that delayed progress but, for the most part, have been solved These include: LHe supply, level gauges wiring problem, cold mass leaks to atmosphere, inadvertent quench triggered by QP system, circuit breaker trips, power supply stability These include: LHe supply, level gauges wiring problem, cold mass leaks to atmosphere, inadvertent quench triggered by QP system, circuit breaker trips, power supply stability The most severe problem was a burnout of one of the six high-current HTS leads The most severe problem was a burnout of one of the six high-current HTS leads

5 LBNL MICE VC August Spectrometer Solenoid Update  Steve Virostek  LBNL HTS Lead Burnout During the 7/3/12 training run, it was discovered that the ‘E’ HTS lead connected to one of the end coils had burned out During the 7/3/12 training run, it was discovered that the ‘E’ HTS lead connected to one of the end coils had burned out Subsequent review of the test data revealed that the lead had exhibited a constant resistance of ~100  during all of the recent training runs Subsequent review of the test data revealed that the lead had exhibited a constant resistance of ~100  during all of the recent training runs The voltage across the lead had never reached a level sufficient to trip the quench system until it spiked above the 100 mV threshold at 245 A The voltage across the lead had never reached a level sufficient to trip the quench system until it spiked above the 100 mV threshold at 245 A The quenched lead burned out before the system could sufficiently reduce the magnet current The quenched lead burned out before the system could sufficiently reduce the magnet current During the 7/3/12 training run, it was discovered that the ‘E’ HTS lead connected to one of the end coils had burned out During the 7/3/12 training run, it was discovered that the ‘E’ HTS lead connected to one of the end coils had burned out Subsequent review of the test data revealed that the lead had exhibited a constant resistance of ~100  during all of the recent training runs Subsequent review of the test data revealed that the lead had exhibited a constant resistance of ~100  during all of the recent training runs The voltage across the lead had never reached a level sufficient to trip the quench system until it spiked above the 100 mV threshold at 245 A The voltage across the lead had never reached a level sufficient to trip the quench system until it spiked above the 100 mV threshold at 245 A The quenched lead burned out before the system could sufficiently reduce the magnet current The quenched lead burned out before the system could sufficiently reduce the magnet current
