  • The MS7001F, a heavy-duty gas turbine for 60 Hz combined- and simple-cycle power generation, was designed and developed by an engineering process which included scaling of existing hardware, application of large-scale numerical modeling techniques, adaptation of field-proven advanced components and component testing. A necessary part of the development process is load testing of the prototype unit at rated firing temperature to verify integrated component and system operation and obtain performance data. The factory load testing of the MS7001F prototype was recently completed and the unit shipped to Chesterfield Station for installation in a combined-cycle application. Described in this paper aremore » the load test facility, instrumentation and data acquisition systems and test program details. Selected test results are also presented.« less
  • We describe the process of conditioning and high-power testing of RF cavities for PEP-II. Procedures for vacuum assembly, bakeout and automated processing are described. Interlocks and safety precautions for protection of equipment and personnel are discussed and performance data of tested cavity assemblies are reported. Performance of ancillary components such as windows, couplers and tuners is also discussed. Comments are included on handling, alignment, installation and commissioning issues where appropriate.
  • At its design level, PEP-II will circulate asymmetric beams at 9 GeV and 1.5 A in a High Energy Ring and 3.1 GeV with 2.1 A in a Low Energy Ring. In addition, the vacuum systems of both rings will be designed to operate at a maximum current of 3 A to provide for higher current operation in the future. Pumping for both rings is provided by sputter ion pump systems. In the High Energy Ring, high gas loads, deriving from the intense photon radiation, are calculated at 1.06 [times] 10[sup [minus]6] Torr liters s[sup [minus]1] m[sup [minus]1] using amore » desorption coefficient (eta) of 2 [times] 10[sup [minus]6] molecules photon[sup [minus]1]. To maintain an average pressure of 5 nTorr or less in the arc cells, lumped ion pumps are used in the 2 m long straight sections and distributed ion pumps are used in the 6 m long dipole chambers where the conductance of the vacuum chamber is prohibitively low. To achieve these pressures, the distributed ion pump system is required to have pumping speeds of 110 liters s[sup [minus]1] m[sup [minus]1] however, a design level of 165 liters s[sup [minus]1] m[sup [minus]1] has been set to provide a factor of safety of 50% based on pumping alone.« less
