"Diagnosis of the University of Maryland Electron Ring with an Orbit Response Matrix"

by Chao Wu

Friday, March 6, 2009 -- 12:00 p.m.
Large Conference Room, 1207 Energy Research Facility

Advisors:  Professors Eyad Abed and Patrick O'Shea

The University of Maryland Electron Ring (UMER) is a scaled electron beam accelerator. Using a low-energy, high current electron beam, UMER studies the beam and accelerator physics of space charge. Although UMER is compact, it is a complex system with more than 100 magnets and other electronic devices. Identifying device failure or malfunction is always a challenge. With the help of the orbit response matrix, we can diagnose the system quickly and efficiently.
