Expert Led Run - 17/2/2016

Expert run. Aim is to shakedown systems for February run & check calibrations

Daily schedule

February 17th
estimated time 8am - 4pm (8pm)
MOM P. Kyberd
Shifter E. Overton
Shifter D. Rajaram
BLOC H. Nebrensky
SOC D. Rajaram
Aim Test Run
Beam? Yes
Additional Personnel Physics shifter

Plan & Personell:

  • 8.30am:
    Search Hall (MOM + Shifter1)
    Start setting up beamline (BLOC).
  • 9.00 am:
    Hall Searched.
    Setup for pion reference beam.
    Start DAQ when ready
    Check that run control is working with cdb (and cdb is being written)
  • 10.00am:
    Check the online reconstruction / monitoring plots for good data.
    Check alarm handlers.
    Speak to physics shifter to ensure they are also getting data / it looks OK?
  • 11.00am:
    Switch to running TOF calibration beam.
  • 11.15am (MOM, BLOC, DC goto unrelated Meeting).
  • 12.30:
    Shifter2 arrives fed to help relieve shifter1/experts for lunch.
  • 16.00:
    If everything goes well we stop taking data..

Otherwise, we have Shifter2 to help an expert debug problems until 20.00.

I think this is a plan... its a test run, so it will probably get heavily modified on the day.

Data Requested

  • Pion Reference
  • TOF Calibration
  • Data rate study

Beamline Configurations

We expect to be running with 2V beamloss and beam bump active.
