C-AD Accelerator Physics Seminar

""A Holistic Approach to Accelerator Reliability Modeling""

Presented by Miha Rescic, University of Huddersfield

Wednesday, July 22, 2015, 1:30 pm — Bldg 911B, Large Conf. Rm. Rm A202

"High reliability has become a crucial issue in the design and operation of accelerators due to the demands of specific applications (e.g. medical accelerators, neutron spallation sources, nuclear waste transmutation). This is particularly relevant for accelerator-driven neutron facilities and for Accelerator-Driven Systems technologies for waste transmutation. Until now, accelerator reliability analysis has mostly been performed using simplified methods either in the design phase of projects, or after the accelerator is operational. This talk discusses a holistic approach to accelerator reliability modeling using Hidden Markov Models to look for emergent behavior of the accelerator, using system-complexity agnostics datasets from the operating machine, e.g. beam current or charge."
