  We introduce the control system of the SuperKEKB collider which is based on EPICS. We standardize the CPU module so that we easily maintain our huge control system. Most Input/Output Controllers (IOCs) installed along the 3 km beamline at SuperKEKB are developed with only two kinds of CPU module. In addition to providing standard IOC for individual hardware, we develop some beam operation system which promotes the beam commissioning. The alarm monitoring system, abort trigger system, and Beam Gate system are developed by the control group. The sophisticated Beam Gate system for positron beam controls operation of both damping ring and main ring. It obviously promotes the beam commissioning at those rings. The other highlight is the precisely synchronized control system. It is necessary to realize the highly complicated control of beam injection process. We configure the dedicated network with the Event Timing System and the distributed shared memory. The distant hardware components are synchronously operated with this network. The beam commissioning of SuperKEKB has been started in 2016. The control system supports its fruitful beam operation without serious problem.

  The SPIRAL2 Facility at GANIL is based on the construction of a superconducting LINAC (up to 5 mA - 40 MeV deuteron beams and up to 1 mA - 14.5 MeV/u heavy ion beams) with two experimental areas called S3 and NFS [1, 2]. At the end of this year, we will reach an important milestone with the first beam accelerated by the superconducting LINAC. The control system of the new facility relies on EPICS and PLC technologies. This paper will focus on the latest validated systems: machine protection system, the LINAC cryogenic system and the radio frequency system of the superconducting cavities. The validation requested a huge effort from all the teams but allow the project to be ready for this important moment.

  Funding: This material is based upon work supported by the U.S. Department of Energy, Office of Science, Office of Basic Energy Sciences, under contract number DE-AC05-00OR22725.
The Spallation Neutron Source at Oak Ridge National Laboratory is planning two major upgrades to the facility. The Proton Power Upgrade project, currently underway, will double the machine power from 1.4 to 2.8 MW by adding seven additional cryomodules and associated equipment. The Second Target Station project, currently in conceptual design, will construct a new target station effectively doubling the potential scientific output of the facility. This paper discusses the control system upgrades required to integrate these projects into the existing EPICS based control systems used for the machine and neutron instrument beamlines. While much of the control system can be replicated from existing solutions, some systems require new hardware and software. Operating two target stations simultaneously will require a new run permit system to safely manage beam delivery.

The National Ignition Facility (NIF) is the world’s most energetic laser experimental facility with 192 beams capable of delivering 2.1 MJ of 500 TW ultraviolet laser light to a target. NIF experiments facilitate the study of extreme physical conditions at temperatures exceeding 100 million K and 100 billion times atmospheric pressure allowing scientists the ability to generate conditions similar to the center of the sun and explore the physics of planetary interiors, supernovae and thermonuclear burn. This year concludes a series of optimizations and enhancements to the control & information systems to sustain the quantity of experimental target shots while developing an enhanced precision diagnostic system to optimize and increase the power and energy capabilities of the facility. In addition, many new system control and diagnostic capabilities have been commissioned to increase the understanding of target performance. This year also concludes a multi-year sustainability project to migrate the control system software to Java. This talk will report on the current status of each of these areas in support of the wide variety of experiments being conducted.

  The Linear IFMIF Prototype Accelerator (LIPAc)* Radio Frequency Quadrupole (RFQ) will accelerate a 130 mA deuteron beam up to 5 MeV in continuous wave. Proton beam commissioning of RFQ cavity, together with Medium Energy Beam Transport Line (MEBT) and Diagnostics Plate, is now ongoing to characterize the accelerator behavior**. The RFQ Local Control System (LCS) was designed following the project guideline. It was partially assembled and verified during the RFQ power test in Italy***. The final system configuration was pre-assembled and tested in Europe, after that it was transferred to Japan, where it was installed, commissioned and integrated into LIPAc Central Control System (CCS) between November 2016 and July 2017, when the RFQ Radio Frequency (RF) conditioning started****. Now the RFQ LCS has been running for 2 years. During this time, especially in the initial period, the system required several adjustments and modifications to its functionality and interface, together with assistance and instructions to the operation team. This paper will try to collect useful lessons learned coming from this experience.

  The European Spallation Source (ESS) is currently under construction in Lund, Sweden. The superconducting section of the linear accelerator consists of three parts; 26 double-spoke cavities gathered in 13 cryomodules, 36 medium beta elliptical cavities gathered in 9 cryomodules and 84 high beta elliptical cavities gathered in 21 cryomodules. The cryomodules have to be tested in a dedicated test facility before installation in the ESS tunnel, Test Stand 2 is dedicated to the tests of the medium beta and high beta elliptical cryomodules for the ESS linear accelerator. In this paper, the authors present the commissioning of the PLC based control system for the cryogenic circuits in the elliptical cavities cryomodules. These circuits allow the circulation of gas Helium at 4.5 K and liquid Helium at 2 K to cool down the niobium cavities and reach the material superconducting state, as well as to keep a thermal shield with gas Helium at 50 K. Cryogenic valves, heaters and different sort of sensors need to be controlled and monitored to operate this system successfully from a Control Room using dedicated Operator Interfaces developed in CS-Studio and following the EPICS architecture.

  MAX IV Laboratory, inaugurated in June 2016, has for the last 8 months accepted synchrotron users on three beamlines, NanoMAX, BioMAX and Hippie, while simultaneously pushing towards bringing more beamlines into the commissioning and user phases. As evidence of this, the last call issued addressed 10 beamlines. As of summer 2019, MAX IV has reached a point where 11 beamlines simultaneously have shutters open and are thus receiving light under stable operation. With 16 beamlines funded, the number of beamlines will grow over the coming years. The Controls and IT group has performed numerous beamline system installations such as a sample changer at BioMAX, Dectris detector at Nanomax, and End Station at Hippie. It has additionally developed processes, such as automated IT infrastructure with a view to accepting users. We foresee a focus on end stations and detectors, as well as data storage, data handling and scientific software. As an example, a project entitled "DataStaMP" has been recently funded aiming to increase the data and metadata storage and management system in order to accommodate the ever increasing demand for storage and access.

  The CERN Neutrino Platform is CERN’s undertaking to foster fundamental research in neutrino physics at particle accelerators worldwide. In this contest CERN has constructed a series of cryogenic test facilities, first of this series is the 5 tons liquid Argon detector named WA105, succeeded by the 800 tons liquid Argon cryostats designated as NP04 and NP02 detectors. The cryogenic control system of these experiments was entirely designed and constructed by CERN to operate 365 days a year in a safe way through all the different phases aimed to cool down and fill the cryostat until reaching nominal stable conditions . This paper describes the process control system design methodology, the off line validation and the operational commissioning including fault scenario handling. A systematic usage of advanced informatics tools, such as CERN/CPC tools, Git and Jenkins, used to ensure a smooth and systematic software development of the process, is presented. Finally, particular attention is given to the adoption of the CERN cryogenic technical standard solutions to enhance reliability, safety, and flexibility of the system working 24 hours a day

  • D.J. Nicklaus
    Fermilab, Batavia, Illinois, USA
 
  The control system, ACNET, for Fermilab’s accelerator complex has enabled the lab’s scientific mission for decades. ACNET has evolved over the years to incorporate new technologies. However, as Fermilab prepares to enter a new era with its PIP-II superconducting linear accelerator, ACNET is at a crossroads. There are several components that are either obsolete or outdated, or certainly will be over the long lifetime of PIP-II. We have begun a plan to modernize our accelerator control system. This paper discusses some of the obsolete hardware and software that needs to be replaced, and lays out options and technologies that we might adopt as part of this modernization effort.

The IRRAD proton irradiation facility at CERN was built during the Long Shutdown 1 (LS1) to address the irradiation experiment needs of the community working for the High-Luminosity (HL) upgrade of the LHC. The present IRRAD is an upgrade of a historical service at CERN that, since the 90’s, exploits the high-intensity 24 GeV/c PS proton beam for radiation-hardness studies of detector, accelerator and semiconductor components and materials. During its first run (2015-2018), IRRAD provided a key service to the CERN community, with more than 2500 samples irradiated. IRRAD is operated via custom-made irradiation systems, beam diagnostics and data management tools. During the Long Shutdown 2 (LS2), IRRAD will undergo several upgrades in order to cope also with new requirements arising for projects beyond the HL-LHC. In this paper, we (1) describe the various hardware and software equipment developed for IRRAD, and (2) present the main challenges encountered during the first years of operation, which have driven most of the improvements planned for LS2 such as applying machine-learning techniques in the processing and real-time analysis of beam profile data.

  The high-gain free electron lasers have given scientists hopes for new scientific discoveries in many frontier research areas. The Shanghai HIgh repetition rate XFEL aNd Extreme light facility (SHINE) is under construction in China, which is a quasi-continuous wave hard X-ray free electron laser facility. The control system is responsible for the facility-wide device control, data acquisition, machine protection, high level database or application, as well as network and computing platform. It will be mainly based on EPICS to reach the balance between the high performance and costs of maintenance. The latest technology will be adopted for the high repetition rate data acquisition and feedback system. The details of the control system design will be reported in this paper.

  The Laser MegaJoule (LMJ) is a 176-beam laser facility, located at the CEA CESTA Laboratory near Bordeaux (France). It is designed to deliver about 1.4 MJ of energy on a target, for high energy density physics experiments, including fusion experiments. The first bundle of 8-beams bundle was commissioned in October 2014. Today five bundles are in operation. In this paper, we focus on two specific evolutions of the command control: the Target Chamber Diagnostic Module (TCDM) which allows the measurement of vacuum windows damages (an automatic sequence activates the TCDM that can be operated at night without any operator) and new Target Diagnostics integration. We also present a cybersecurity network analysis system based on Sentryo Probes and how we manage maintenance laptops in the facility.

IFMIF-DONES is the International Fusion Materials Irradiation Facility-DEMO Oriented NEutron Source, an accelerator-based neutron source where a high-energy deuterons beam is focused on a fast flowing liquid lithium jet to produce high-energy neutrons via stripping reactions with intensity and irradiation volume sufficient to generate material irradiation test data for design, licensing, construction and safe operation of the DEMO fusion reactor. This work presents the design of Central Instrumentation and Control Systems for the IFMIF-DONES plant and describes its most recent development. After a general overview of the current status of the design, the differences with respect to the corresponding system developed during the previous phases of the project will be highlighted. The paper describes the overall architecture (in terms of definitions, functions and requirements) and provides details about the identification of subsystems and equipment. A particular attention will be given to the I&C Networks connecting infrastructures.

  The China Spallation Neutron Source (CSNS) accelerator consists of an 80 MeV H linac, a 1.6 GeV Rapid Cycling Synchrotron (RCS) and two beam transport lines. The designed proton beam power is 100 kW in Phase-I. EPICS(Experimental Physics and Industrial Control System) is chosen as the software platform for the accelerator control system. The accelerator control system mainly consists of 21 sub-systems. VME64x based system with real-time embedded controllers is chosen for the timing system and fast protection system. PLCs and some embedded industrial computers are used for the device level controls. CSS (Control System Studio) and RDB based techniques are adopted for high level applications. The overall control system has been completed in 2018 and transitioned to routine operations in September of the same year. The design and the operation status of the overall accelerator control system are introduced in this paper.

  In September 2017 the European XFEL entered user operation after years of construction and one year of commissioning. To provide a fast and flexible startup of the various sections of the machine, the high-level control software was essential from the beginning. While progressing in commissioning and increasing operation parameter space, the enormous complexity of the European XFEL put hard requirements on the control and operation concepts. Having now the full baseline parameters reached, this paper will review the high-level software concepts and architecture in respect to effectiveness, reliability and ease of operation. Beside a review of the high-level software concepts and design ideas also general operation concepts and the interoperability between the various sub-systems in respect to the overall facility performance will be presented.

  BERLinPro is an energy recovery linac (ERL) demonstrator project built at HZB. It features CW SRF technology for the low emittance, high brightness gun, the booster module and the recovery linac. Construction and civil engineering are mostly completed. Synchronized with the device integration the EPICS based control system is being set-up for testing, commissioning and finally operation. In the warm part of the accelerator technology that is already operational at BESSY and MLS (e.g. CAN-bus and PLC/OPCUA) is used. New implementations like the machine protection system and novel major subsystems (e.g. LLRF, Cryo-Controls, photo cathode laser) need to be integrated. The first RF transmitters have been tested and commissioned. At the time of this conference the first segment of the accelerator is scheduled to become online. For commissioning and operation of the facility the standard set of EPICS tools form the back-bone. A set of generic Python applications already developed at BESSY/MLS will be adapted to the specifics of BERLinPro. Scope and current project status are described in this paper.
