Open midplane designs based on sector coils in superconducting dipole magnets
Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 20 points / 30 hpStudent thesis
For some cases of lattice layout in particle accelerators, the major part of the energy deposition coming from the collision is located in the midplane of the magnets. The heat produced might result in a quench in superconducting magnets. One solution for reducing the energy deposition in the coil is to introduce an opening in the midplane, which will lead away most of the particles to a safe zone instead of hitting the superconductors in the magnets.
The aim of this work is to optimize the field quality in dipoles based on the cosθ-design, where an opening in the midplane has been inserted. The equations for finding the solutions for the coil layout for different sizes of the opening are studied, and the solution giving the best field quality for each case is presented. Then, optimization procedures are applied to lay-outs with Rutherford cables. Finally, the resulting field strength from the solutions obtained is presented.
