600 Hz also in SIS-100 quadrupole power converters: 12 pulse line commutated converter (SCR.) Switching Mode (SM) structure: Hard switching. Supplies current to the main quadrupoles. All main quadrupoles but 2 are superconducting. Umax = 640 V at 100 Tm U/Umax = 1% Strongest ripple at f = 600 Hz L = 29 mH (series load) R from connecting cable only. Z  2fL I=U/Z = 59 mA Imax = 7.8 kA (100 Tm) I/I = 7.5x10-6 Closed-loop control has N=18-bit ADC for current measurement. 2N-1 levels from zero to Imax (Unipolar current, Bipolar voltage.) Therefore, minimum possible accuracy is 30 mA During flattop: Magnets are not ramped! 300 Hz component: U/Umax = 0.5% would yield same I
