A precise and stable timing system is necessary for high intensity proton accelerators such as the J-PARC. The existing timing system, which was developed during the construction period of the-PARC, has been working without major issues since 2006. After a decade of operation, the optical modules, which are key components for signal transfer, were discontinued already. Thus, the next-generation timing system for the J-PARC is under development. The new system is designed to be compatible with the existing system in terms of the operating principle. The new system utilizes modern high speed signal communication for the transfer of the clock, trigger, and type code. We present the system configuration of the next-generation timing system and current status.

Towards widespread use of MTCA in accelerators

Tamura, Fumihiko; Yoshii, Masahito*; Kamikubota, Norihiko*; Takahashi, Hiroki

Proceedings of 17th Annual Meeting of Particle Accelerator Society of Japan (Internet), p.68 - 72, 2020/09

MTCA (MicroTCA) is expected to be the next generation platform for advanced control in accelerators. MTCA has many advantages over the widely used VMEs, such as high speed, large data transfer capacity, and high maintainability with hot-swappable modules. After the application to the LLRF control system at KEK, MTCA has been used in many accelerators around the world, while it takes a long time for MTCA to spread to the accelerators in Japan. Recently, the number of large-scale adoptions such as the LLRF control system, for the J-PARC RCS has been increasing. In this article, we introduce a case study of MTCA adoption and discuss why MTCA has not been widely used in Japan. Also, the efforts for the future promotion of MTCA in Japan are reported.

Next generation timing system for J-PARC

Tamura, Fumihiko; Takahashi, Hiroki; Kamikubota, Norihiko*; Ito, Yuichi; Hayashi, Naoki

Proceedings of 16th Annual Meeting of Particle Accelerator Society of Japan (Internet), p.149 - 152, 2019/07

Precise timing pulses from the timing system are necessary for acceleration of high intensity proton beams in the J-PARC accelerators. The existing timing system was developed during the construction period of the J-PARC. The system has been working well for more than ten years, however, the optical modules for the signal transfer from the central control building to the accelerators are discontinued already. Although we have spares of the optical devices, maintenance of the system will be difficult. Therefore, we are developing the next generation timing system for the J-PARC. We present the design of the system, preliminary test results, and future plans.

Operation status of J-PARC timing system and future plan

Kamikubota, Norihiko*; Kikuzawa, Nobuhiro; Tamura, Fumihiko; Yamamoto, Noboru*

Proceedings of 15th International Conference on Accelerator and Large Experimental Physics Control Systems (ICALEPCS 2015) (Internet), p.988 - 991, 2016/01

The beam commissioning of J-PARC started in November, 2006. Since then, the timing system of J-PARC accelerator complex has contributed stable beam operations of three accelerators: a 400-MeV linac (LI), a 3-GeV rapid cycling synchrotron (RCS), and a 50-GeV synchrotron (MR). The timing system handles two different repetition cycles: 25 Hz for LI and RCS, and 2.48-6.00 sec. for MR (MR cycle). In addition, the timing system is capable to provide beams to two different experimental facilities in single MR cycle: Material and Life Science Experimental Facility (MLF) and Neutrino Experimental Facility (NU), or, MLF and Hadron Experimental Facility (HD). Recently, a plan to introduce a new facility, Accelerator-Driven Transmutation Experimental Facility (ADS), around 2018, has been discussed. This paper reviews the 8-year operation experience of the J-PARC timing system, followed by a present perspective of upgrade studies.

Yamamoto, Kazami; Kawase, Masato; Iwama, Yuhei; Fukuta, Shimpei; Kato, Yuko; Ouchi, Nobuo; Meigo, Shinichiro; Oi, Motoki; Kamikubota, Norihiko*

Proceedings of 11th Annual Meeting of Particle Accelerator Society of Japan (Internet), p.771 - 774, 2014/10

The radiation leak accident happened in the hadron experimental hall of J-PARC on May 23, 2013. The accident was caused by a target sublimation due to an unanticipated beam from the 50 GeV main ring (MR). To detect and prevent the radiation leakage in all facilities of J-PARC, we improve the machine protection system (MPS). In the J-PARC 3GeV synchrotron (Rapid Cycling Synchrotron, RCS), a monitoring system of an abnormal state of the extraction beam to the mercury target of material life science experiment facility (MLF) were prepared. The radiation level of the gas in the tunnel were able to always observed by connecting radiation safety system and accelerator control system. The dump temperature was included in the MPS. We also developed new interlock system that can stop the beam immediately when the beam current exceed the limit.

Kawase, Masato; Kikuzawa, Nobuhiro; Takayanagi, Tomohiro; Kamikubota, Norihiko*; Yamamoto, Noboru

Proceedings of 8th Annual Meeting of Particle Accelerator Society of Japan (Internet), p.574 - 578, 2011/08

J-PARC has been shifting to stable beam operation phase for the experimental facility, and the beam commissioning is going to be needed of 3 GeV Synchrotron Accelerator (RCS) after 400 MeV upgrade of Linear Accelerator (LINAC). In order to achieve more stable and safety beam commissioning, it is necessary to implement of control and monitor using machine interface for prevention of human error. We plan to develop the ideal application and high performance data acquisition system for the beam commissioning. This report shows problems of this control system and the required performance for overall-control system of RCS.

J-PARC is a large scale facility of the proton accelerators for the multi-purpose of scientific researches in Japan. This facility consists of three accelerators and three experimental stations. Now, J-PARC is under construction, and LINAC is operated for one year, 3GeV synchrotron has just started the commissioning in this October the 1st. The completion of this facility will be next summer. The control system of accelerators established fundamental performance for the initial commissioning. The most important requirement to the control system of this facility is to minimize the activation of accelerator devices. In this paper, we show that the performances of each layer of this control system have been achieved in the initial stage.

Proceedings of 3rd Annual Meeting of Particle Accelerator Society of Japan and 31st Linear Accelerator Meeting in Japan (CD-ROM), p.373 - 375, 2006/00

A Relational database (RDB) system, which is the core of the J-PARC Linac control system, has been developed. The beam commissioning of Linac is planned to start in December 2006. The RDB sytem consists of the following databases; "DB1", which records basic device parameters, "DB2", which acquires online EPICS data, "Operation Log DB", which records a history of operating parameters, and "Commissioning DB", which holds information on geometry of devices and commissioning. We report on the development status of each DB as well as status of the unified commissioning environment software which utilizes these databases.

The beam study of the low-energy front of J-PARC linac has been in progress in the KEK site. Last year, DTL1 (the first tank of three DTL's) was installed in addition to RFQ and the Medium Energy Beam Transport line, and the beam commissioning up to 20MeV has been performed successfully. In this paper, the low level RF (LLRF) System for this beam test is summarized and the performance of the RF feed back control system and monitor system of the phase and amplitude of the accelerating fields (324 MHz) is presented. It was found that the feed back system for Bunchers is also necessary to stabilize and to compensate for the beam induced fields.

As a joint project of KEK and JAERI, a MW class of high intensity proton accelerator (J-PARC), consisting of Linac, 3 GeV-RCS, 50 GeV-MR, is under construction. For this accelerator, it is required to minimize the beam loss (typically, lower than0.1$$sim$$1 W/m at the linac). To achieve the requirement, beam trajectory needs to be controlled with accuracy of some 100 $$mu$$m. The first stage of the acceleration (up to 181 MeV during the first stage of construction) is done by linac. The beam position monitor (BPM) in the linac utilizes 4 stripline pickups (50 ohm) on the beam transportation chamber. In this paper, systematic calibration of the BPM is described.
