We are developing a new kicker power supply for J-PARC 3-GeV RCS (Rapid-Cycling Synchrotron) using the next generation power semiconductor SiC-MOSFET with high withstand voltage, low loss, and superior high frequency characteristics. The three major circuits adopted for the RCS kicker power supply, the thyratron switch, the PFN circuit of coaxial cable type, and the end clipper for reflection wave absorption, has been realized with a single modular circuit board based on the LTD circuit. The new kicker power supply realizes stable operation, miniaturization and energy saving by using power semiconductors. The required high voltage can be output by stacking the 800V/2kA modular circuit board in series. The details of circuit design and the results of achieving an output of half 20kV/2kA against the target specification of 40kV/2kA are presented here.

Semiconductor switch power supply for RCS kicker

Takayanagi, Tomohiro; Ono, Ayato; Horino, Koki*; Ueno, Tomoaki*; Togashi, Tomohito; Yamamoto, Kazami; Kinsho, Michikazu

Proceedings of 17th Annual Meeting of Particle Accelerator Society of Japan (Internet), p.25 - 28, 2020/09

We have been developing a semiconductor switch power supply to replace the RCS kicker power supply in J-PARC. A SiC MOSFET is used as a power semiconductor element, and a radially symmetric LTD circuit is used for the circuit board. The power supply consists of a combination of two types of circuit boards: a main circuit board, which includes the circuits of the thyratron, PFN and end clipper provided in RCS kicker power supplies, on a single module board, and a correction board, which compensates for flat-top droop. A single main circuit board can provide 800V/2kA output, and 52 main circuit boards and 20 correction boards have been used to successfully achieve the high voltage of 40kV and flat-top flatness of less than $$pm$$0.2%. Furthermore, a preliminary test of the dual-parallel circuit was conducted for a twin kicker power supply configuration, which is required for the RCS kicker power supply. The evaluation results and prospects are presented.

We perform large-scale shell-model calculations for unnatural-parity high-spin states in neutron-rich Cr and Fe isotopes with $$N$$ = 31-35. The excitation energies of the $$9/2^+_1$$ states for those odd-mass nuclei sharply decrease with the neutron number, which attracts much interest. In this study, we calculate those unnatural-parity states systematically using an effective interaction comprised of existing ones plus minimal modifications. The calculated energy levels excellently agree with experimental data. The deformations of those isotopes are analysed by using the wave functions obtained by the shell-model calculations. We show that prolate deformation dominates this region, contrary to the previous suggestion based on the $$9/2^+_1$$ isomeric level. It is demonstrated that the sharp decrease of the $$9/2^+_1$$ levels occurs due to the rising of the Fermi surface, but not due to the evolution of the $$g_{9/2}$$ single-particle level as suggested previously.

The power supply of the pulse steering magnet has been produced. The power supply has the equipment used to excite the pulse current and the direct-current (DC) to correspond to two modes that the painting injection for beam users and the central injection for beam commissioning. The pulse current has been performed with good accuracy whose deviation to a setting current becomes to be less than 0.2%. In case of the central injection, the power supply excites the current in DC mode, which has been realized the ripple current below 0.01%. This paper describes the design parameters and the experimental results of the power supply.

J-PARC RCS has two functions as a proton beam driver to the spallation neutron source at MLF and also as an injector to MR. However the required beam parameters for each facility are different. The pulse steering magnet (PSTR) was developed to satisfy these requirements by switching the painting area in each acceleration cycle of MLF and MR and to realize center injection at 400 MeV. Therefore there are two operation modes, painting injection and center injection, for operation of PSTR. Painting injection switches beam size (emittance) between MR and MLF and center injection sets injected beam in the same phase space position. The former is operated with pulse mode of trapezoid current pattern and the latter is realized in DC mode. The magnet field measurement was also performed with two operation modes. In this paper we will report the result of the field measurement of PSTR.

Each pulse power supply of the bending magnets at the J-PARC 3-GeV RCS injection area has been designed and manufactured for the painting injection in the transverse plane. The shift bump and pulse steering magnets generate a trapezoidal waveform, the flat-top part of which is used for beam injection. The horizontal and vertical painting bump magnets dynamically change the beam orbit using a decaying waveform. The PFN switching capacitor system does not produce a current ripple at the flat top, although the IGBT chopping system cannot be free from ripple generation due to switching. However, the IGBT chopping system has an advantage of producing an arbitrary wave pattern as required. This paper summarizes the comparison of both power supply system from view point of the circuit structure, the switching noise and the control of the wave pattern formation.

New power supply of the injection shift bump magnet at the J-PARC 3-GeV RCS has been designed with the energy upgrading of LINAC to 400 MeV. The power supply is required to output the maximum current of 32 kA, which is 1.6 times the present current. Moreover, both current ripple noise and deviation should be less than 0.2% in a range from 10 kA to 32 kA output current. The IGBT chopping system as in the present power supply occurs the continuous current ripple due to the switching. So the circuit structure of the power supply has been changed from the IGBT chopping system to the PFN system by switching the capacitors. The power panel is comprised of 16 banks, each of which outputs 2 kA at 14 kV at maximum. More than four banks have been manufactured and the characteristics were evaluated in the factory. This paper summarizes the design and the experimental results of the new power supply.

Computing Hamiltonian matrix elements between non-orthogonal Slater determinants is often needed for nuclear-structure calculations, and it is the most time-consuming part in many cases. In this paper, we demonstrate that utilizing GPGPU is an efficient way to perform this calculation. In our earlier study, we showed that the calculation of the Hamiltonian matrix elements between non-orthogonal Slater determinants is transformed into the multiplication of matrices. This method is useful for the GPGPU calculation because of less memory access compared to the usual method. We implement the GPGPU computation in the Monte Carlo shell-model code and measure the elapsed time. The resulting performance is over 0.6 TFLOPS for the GPU that has 1.13 TFLOPS peak performance. This method is particularly effective for large-scale calculations because higher efficiency is obtained for the calculation of larger model spaces.

The 3-GeV RCS (Rapid Cycling Synchrotron) of J-PARC (Japan Proton Accelerator Research Complex) uses 8 pulse kicker magnets for the beam extraction at a repetition rate of 25 Hz. Each kicker power supply has 2 thyratrons and thus they are 16 in total. An average life time of thyratrons even more than the J-PARC annual operation time of 5000 hours and a stable operation with a downtime of less than only 0.5% has already been achieved. The present maintenance procedures and statistics for the long term operation with thyratrons are reported in this paper.

The simulation model for a new power supply of the injection bump system magnets of the 3-GeV RCS in J-PARC has been constructed. The new power supply requires the reduction of the ripple noise current which will resonate with load and excites a forced beam oscillation at the injection stage. In order to incorporate the load impedance in the simulation model, the impedances of a feeder line and the bump magnet with a ceramic vacuum chamber inside were measured. The RF shield is formed on the ceramic surface along the beam direction. The results were analyzed using the OPERA-3D and the circuit simulation code, Micro-Cap. A good agreement with measured was obtained.

New power supply of the injection bump magnet for upgrading the injection energy in the J-PARC 3-GeV RCS

Takayanagi, Tomohiro; Hayashi, Naoki; Ueno, Tomoaki; Togashi, Tomohito; Tani, Norio; Kinsho, Michikazu; Toda, Katsunori*

Proceedings of 3rd International Particle Accelerator Conference (IPAC '12) (Internet), p.3626 - 3628, 2012/05

With the energy upgrading of LINAC to 400 MeV in the J-PARC, a new power supply of the injection bump magnet has been designed for the 3-GeV RCS. The new power supply of the shift bump magnet is composed with the capacitor bank which has function to form the output current pattern. This power supply is a commutation strategy using the electrical charge and discharge of the capacitor, and the frequency of the switch that becomes the source of the noise is a little. Comparing to the conventional switching-type power supply, this power supply is switched only three times for the pattern formation. Thus, the ripple due to the switching can be expected to be much lower. The 1/16 scale model was manufactured and the characteristics was evaluated. This paper summarizes the design parameter and the experimental result of the new power supply.
