The SPS auxiliary magnet power supplies

S Van Der Meer & Hendrik C Appelo
A functional description is given of these thyristor power supplies- many of which are of the bipolar type without circulating current-with emphasis on the CERN-developed regulation circuits. A detailed analysis is given of a new thyristor gate control with low subharmonic content and fast response over a wide rectifier output range. A current regulation time constant of 14 msec is maintained even at near-zero output, where the thyristors conduct only during a small fraction of...

This Report summarises the results of the second year's activities of the LHC Higgs Cross Section Working Group. The main goal of the working group was to present the state of the art of Higgs Physics at the LHC, integrating all new results that have appeared in the last few years. The first working group report Handbook of LHC Higgs Cross Sections: 1. Inclusive Observables (CERN-2011-002) focuses on predictions (central values and errors) for total...

Accelerator Science and Technology Breakthroughs, Achievements and Lessons from the Tevatron

Vladimir Shiltsev
For almost a quarter of a century, the Tevatron proton-antiproton collider was the centerpiece of the world's high energy physics program - beginning operation in December of 1985 until it was overtaken by LHC in 2011. The aim of this unique scientific instrument was to explore the elementary particle physics reactions with center of mass collision energies of up to 1.96 TeV. The initial design luminosity of the Tevatron was 1030cm-2s-1, however as a result...
