Draft Schedule for August 2nd -- 5th Run

  • We have access to beam from 8am on August 2nd to 8pm on August 5th.
  • The DS is off, so we need to get a factor 2-4 more data
    • Increases amount of time needed to get the data we want

(Guesstimate) Assume we are ready to take data from 1pm on the 2nd. How much time will we need?

Task # target pulses w/o DS time w/o DS
Reference run 200 ~ 4 min
Rate @ TOF2 ?? ??
PID data 10'000 ~3 hours
6'000 ~1.5 hours
TOF calibration 10'000 ~ 3 hours
10'000 ~ 3 hours
5'000 ~ 1.5 hours
Quad alignment 750/measurement ~ 13 min/meas @ 15 measurements = ~ 2.5 hours*

where * indicates allowing 5 minutes between measurements for Q789's currents to be changed and ramped.

Let's divide up the days as follows:
  • Friday 1pm -- 8pm:
    • 7 hours
    • Reference run -- 15 min
    • TOF calibration #1 -- 3 hours
    • TOF calibration #2 -- 3 hours
      • 6 hours 15 min allocated out of 7
  • Saturday: 8am -- 8pm:
    • 12 hours
    • Reference run -- 15 min
    • TOF calibration #2 -- 1.5 hours
    • PID data #1 -- 3 hours (or 100k-200k triggers)
    • PID data #2 -- 1.5 hours (or 100k-200k triggers)
    • TOF2 rate -- ??
      • 6 hours 15 minutes allocated out of 12 + unknown
  • Sunday: 8am -- 8pm:
    • 12 hours
    • Reference run -- 15 min
  • Monday: 8am -- 8pm:
    • 12 hours
    • Reference run -- 15 min
    • Quadrupole alignment -- 2.5 hours
    • TOF2 rate -- ??
