1 Performance Limitations of the Booster Cavity Mohamed Hassan, Vyacheslav Yakovlev, John Reid

2 Booster Parameters  The Fermilab Booster is a synchrotron that accelerates protons from 400 MeV to 8 GeV  The Booster circumference is meters, the magnetic cycle is a biased 15 Hz sinusoid, and the RF operates at harmonic 84 of the revolution frequency

3 Ferrite Tuners Stack Pole Toshiba Inner Conductor Taper Tetrode Conn? Tuner Conn Gap Details? Some Drawing Details is Still Missing Tuner Inner Taper? Ceramic? Geometry of Booster Cavity

4 Material Properties Stack PoleToshiba µ max Magnetic Loss 50 MHz Dielectric Const Dielectric Loss 50 MHz Ferrite Tuners Stack Pole Toshiba Stack Pole Differential PermeabilityToshiba Differential Permeability Some Material Properties are Still Missing Not enough range

5 Simplified EM Model µ= MHz µ= MHz µ= MHz

6 More Realistic Tuner  Added the 5 Toshiba ferrites, and the 9 Stack Pole pieces separated by the copper washers  Tuner Connection is not correct yet here

7 Mu=20, 12.5 Mu=1.5, 1.5 More Realistic Tuner—Permability Bounds The upper bound of permeability gives very close resonance frequency (26.99 MHz) from the measured value MHz

9 Voltage Breakdown In Air ~ 3 MV/m (30 KV/cm) In Vacuum (according to Kilpatrick) is ~ 10 MV/m (theoretical) 18 MV/m (measured) Theoretical Kilpatrick Theoretical Peter et. Al. Measured W. Peter, R.

13 Tuner Fields at 37 MHz Difficulties in getting accurate field representation of the triple points singularities due to limited computational resources

14 Tuner Fields at 37 MHz 2D 2D simulation suggests that the max field exists at the 10 th, 11 th ferrite piece Abs(Ez)

15 Simulation vs. Measurements

16 Specifications for Design of New Accelerating Cavities for the Fermilab Booster CurrentModified Frequency Range MHzSame V acc 55 KV86 KV R/Q>50 Duty CycleEffectively 25%50% Repetition RateEffectively 7 Hz15 Hz Cavity TuningHorizontal BiasSame Beam Pipe Diameter 2.25”>3” Higher Order Mode Impedance <1000 Ohm CoolingLCW at 95 F, Water flow up to 21 gpm Same

17 Challenges of the Cavity Modifications Weak points of max fields in Vacuum and Air will be more susceptible to break down Higher Gap Voltage Current cooling design may not tolerate the additional heating in tuners Higher Repetition Rate To resolve the activation problem Larger Beam Pipe

18 Conclusion Full 3D model with most of the fine details has been created 3D EM simulation has been carried out at different frequencies Identified weak points of max electric field in air and vacuum at the different frequencies Need more data (material, geometry, and measured performance) to get the model closer to the physical structure

19 What is next? More data collection – Material (Stack-Pole permeability vs. Bias Field N/A … So may be we measure it) – Geometrical features (Blended Edges, Tetrode Conn, Tuner Conn, Bias Geometry) – Measured Cavity Performance (Gap voltage vs. time, R/Q vs. freq) -- John promised to provide these data Improve the current model to get it closer to the physical cavity Thermal simulation to get a temperature profile along the cavity and specially in the tuner Double the repetition rate to 15 Hz and repeat the thermal simulation Change the pipe diameter to 3” and repeat the EM analysis Increase the gap voltage to 86 KV and find the max fields in vacuum and air
