The Control System of CERN Accelerators Vacuum (LS1 Activities and New Developments) / Gomes, P (CERN, Switzerland) ; Antoniotti, F (CERN, Switzerland) ; Bellorini, F (CERN, Switzerland) ; Blanchard, S (CERN, Switzerland) ; Boivin, JP (CERN, Switzerland) ; Gama, J (CERN, Switzerland) ; Girardot, G (CERN, Switzerland) ; Pigny, G (CERN, Switzerland) ; Rio, B (CERN, Switzerland) ; Vestergard, H (CERN, Switzerland) et al.
After 3 years of operation, the LHC entered its first Long Shutdown period (LS1), in February 2013 [1]. Major consolidation and maintenance works are being performed across the whole CERN’s Accelerator chain, in order to prepare the LHC to restart at higher energy, in 2015. [...]

Validation of the Data Consolidation in Layout Database for the LHC Tunnel Cryogenics Controls Upgrade / Tovar-Gonzalez, A (CERN, Switzerland) ; Balle, C (CERN, Switzerland) ; Blanco, E (CERN, Switzerland) ; Fortescue-Beck, E (CERN, Switzerland) ; Fluder, C (CERN, Switzerland) ; Inglese, V (CERN, Switzerland) ; Pezzetti, M (CERN, Switzerland) ; Gomes, P (CERN, Switzerland) ; Wolak, T (CERN, Switzerland) ; Dudek, M (CERN, Switzerland) et al.
The control system of the Large Hadron Collider cryogenics manages over 34’000 instrumentation and actuator channels. The complete information on their characteristics and parameters can be extracted from a set of views on the Layout database, to generate the specifications of the control system; from these, the code to populate PLCs (Programmable Logic Controller) and SCADA (Supervisory Control & Data Acquisition) is automatically produced, within the UNICOS framework (Unified Industrial Control System).

Mitigation of Radiation and EMI Effects on the Vacuum Control System of LHC / Pigny, G (CERN, Switzerland) ; Gomes, P (CERN, Switzerland) ; Rio, B (CERN, Switzerland) ; Krakowski, P (AGH, Cracow, Poland)
The 26 km of vacuum chambers where circulates the beam of the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) must be maintained under Ultra High Vacuum (UHV) to minimize the beam interactions with residual gases, and allow the operation of specific systems. The vacuum level is measured by several thousands of gauges along the accelerator. [...]

Radiation Tolerant Programmable Power Supply for the LHC Beam Screen Heaters / Casas, J (CERN, Switzerland) ; Trikoupis, N (CERN, Switzerland)
For the next LHC run, it is required to install 200W of heating capacity per LHC beam screen heater to regenerate the beam screen by desorption of gas trapped on its walls. In the LHC, there are 272 beam screen heaters and the associated electronics limit presently the heating capacity to 25W. [...]

High Luminosity LHC Project Description / Apollinari, Giorgio (Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory & LARP) ; Brüning, Oliver (CERN) ; Rossi, Lucio (CERN)
The High Luminosity LHC (HL-LHC) is a novel configuration of the Large Hadron Collider, aiming at increasing the luminosity by a factor five or more above the nominal LHC design, to allow increasing the integrated luminosity, in the high luminosity experiments ATLAS and CMS, from the 300 fb-1 of the LHC original design up to 3000 fb-1 or more.
