An Operator assistance system for beam adjustment of JAERI AVF cyclotron

Agematsu, Takashi; Arakawa, Kazuo; Okumura, Susumu; Nakamura, Yoshiteru; Tajima, Satoshi

Cyclotron start-up operations require dozens of adjustable parameters to be tuned to maximize extracted beam current. Experienced operators perform this process through trial and error using their experience and intuition. However, the process is difficult for inexperienced operators because operator need to adjust parameters using little information such as measured beam data, alarm, status of components, and so on. We have developed a computer-based visual assistance system for JAERI AVF cyclotron. The system provides a CRT display: the cyclotron beam trajectories, feasible setting regions, search traces and the beam envelopes for external beam transport designed to optimize beam parameter adjustment. The evaluation experiment for the system was carried out and the operation time to reach required beam conditions of the injection region of the cyclotron was reduced by approximately 65%. Also the system is very useful to study the problems on the beam transport such as beam trajectory, envelope, beam profile, spot size and so on.
