Upgrade of the SPS Injection Kicker System for the LHC High Luminosity Operation with Heavy Ion Beam / Kramer, T (CERN, Switzerland) ; Borburgh, J (CERN, Switzerland) ; Goddard, B (CERN, Switzerland) ; Ducimetière, L (CERN, Switzerland) ; Sermeus, L (CERN, Switzerland) ; Uythoven, J (CERN, Switzerland) ; Velotti, FM (CERN, Switzerland)
In the context of the LHC High Luminosity Upgrade project a performance upgrade for heavy ions is envisaged. One of the performance limitations is the rise time of the present SPS injection kicker system MKP. [...]

Performance Studies of the SPS Beam Dump System for HL-LHC Beams / Velotti, FM (CERN, Switzerland) ; Aberle, O (CERN, Switzerland) ; Bracco, C (CERN, Switzerland) ; Carlier, E (CERN, Switzerland) ; Cerutti, F (CERN, Switzerland) ; Cornelis, K (CERN, Switzerland) ; Ducimetiere, L (CERN, Switzerland) ; Goddard, B (CERN, Switzerland) ; Kain, V (CERN, Switzerland) ; Losito, R (CERN, Switzerland) et al.
The Super Proton Synchrotron (SPS) beam dump system is a concern for the planned High Luminosity LHC (HL-LHC) operation. The system has initially been designed for very different beam parameters compared to those which will reign after the completion of the LHC injectors upgrade, when the SPS will have to operate with unprecedented beam brightness.

Feasibility Studies for the Extraction of both LHC Beams from CERN SPS using a Common Kicker / Velotti, FM (CERN, Switzerland) ; Bartmann, W (CERN, Switzerland) ; Bracco, C (CERN, Switzerland) ; Carlier, E (CERN, Switzerland) ; Cornelis, K (CERN, Switzerland) ; Goddard, B (CERN, Switzerland) ; Kain, V (CERN, Switzerland) ; Meddahi, M (CERN, Switzerland)
The CERN Super Proton Synchrotron has to fulfil the demanding intensity specifications for the High Luminosity LHC (HL-LHC) era, with a doubling of the presently achieved operational beam intensity. One of the main problems to be addressed is given by impedance-driven beam instabilities. [...]

The Challenge of Interfacing the Primary Beam Lines for the AWAKE Project at CERN / Bracco, C (CERN, Switzerland) ; Goddard, B (CERN, Switzerland) ; Gschwendtner, E (CERN, Switzerland) ; Meddahi, M (CERN, Switzerland) ; Petrenko, A (CERN, Switzerland) ; Velotti, FM (CERN, Switzerland)
The Proton Driven Plasma Wakefield Acceleration Experiment (AWAKE) at CERN foresees the simultaneous operation of a proton, a laser and an electron beam. The first stage of the experiment will consist in proving the self-modulation, in the plasma, of a long proton bunch into micro-bunches. [...]

Formal verification of complex properties on PLC programs / Darvas, D ; Fernandez Adiego, B ; Voros, A ; Bartha, T ; Blanco Vinuela, E ; Gonzalez Suarez, V M
Formal verification has become a recommended practice in the safety-critical application areas. However, due to the complexity of practical control and safety systems, the state space explosion often prevents the use of formal analysis. [...]
