Post-LS1 Powering Tests Campaign


The campaign of re-commissioning of the superconducting circuits after LS1 started on September 10 and will continue till early 2015.
You can find below the cumulative number of powering steps executed on the available circuits.

The target for 2015 is 10980 A <=> 6.5 TeV, with 100 A of margin for stable operation. Once the circuit has reached 11080 A, the training quench campaign is closed in the concerned sector.
