Title: Thermal Modeling and Cryogenic Design of a Helical Superconducting Undulator Cryostat

Abstract

A conceptual design for a helical superconducting undulator (HSCU) for the Advanced Photon Source (APS) at Argonne National Laboratory (ANL) has been completed. The device differs sufficiently from the existing APS planar superconducting undulator (SCU) design to warrant development of a new cryostat based on value engineering and lessons learned from the existing planar SCU. Changes include optimization of the existing cryocooler-based refrigeration system and thermal shield as well as cost reduction through the use of standard vacuum hardware. The end result is a design that provides significantly larger 4.2 K refrigeration margin in a smaller package for greater installation flexibility in the APS storage ring. This paper presents ANSYS-based thermal analysis of the cryostat, including estimated static and dynamic

  • The most sensitive part of superconducting rotors for power stations is the optimal design of the liquid helium region and long term operation performance of the insulation system. Fundamental publications have highlighted the problems of special parts of this system such as the current leads or torque tubes, which form a conducting connection between the warm ambient region and the cryogenic part of the rotor. This paper reports on the thermal design of the total rotor. The paper starts with a rough estimate of the heat losses using mean values for the material properties. Then some numerical results of calculationmore » codes for the stationary temperature profiles, taking into account the real situation, are reported. Finally transient temperature profiles in individual parts of the rotor are given. The results are compared with experimental measurements of a test rotor.« less
  • The helical undulator for the proposed International Linear Collider (ILC) positron source requires high-permeability steel poles and superconducting coils to meet the ILC parameters. A short-model undulator with a period of 14 mm was designed, fabricated including high-permeability steel poles, and tested in LHe. The ends of the model were designed to wind the Nb{sub 3}Sn double helix without any conductor joints. After a few quenches in the first excitation test, the current density in the coil reached 1.28 kA/mm{sup 2}, which was approximately 90% of the estimated short-sample critical current density. The periodic on-axis fields were mapped at twomore » azimuth angles. Excluding the end fields, the standard deviation of the field amplitudes and higher harmonic coefficients for the periodic field were less than 7 x 10{sup -3} and 5 x 10{sup -3}, respectively.« less
  • A helical superconducting undulator is planned for installation at the APS. Such an installation would be first of its kind – helical devices were never installed in synchrotron light sources before. Due to its reduced horizontal aperture, a lattice modification is required to accommodate for large horizontal oscillations during injection. We describe the lattice change details and show the new lattice experimental test results. To understand the effect of the undulator on single-particle dynamics, first, its kick maps were computed using different methods. We have found that often-used Elleaume formula* for kick maps gives wrong results for this undulator. Wemore » then used the kick maps obtained by other methods to simulate the effect of the undulator on injection and lifetime.« less
  • Improvements in the technology of superconducting magnets for high energy physics and recent advancements in SC materials with the artificial pinning centers (APC){sup 2}, have made a bifilar helical SC device an attractive candidate for a single-pass free electron laser (FEL){sup 3}. Initial studies have suggested that a 6.5 mm inner diameter helical device, with a 27 mm period, can generate a central field of 2-2.5 Tesla. Additional studies have also suggested that with a stored energy of 300 J/m, such a device can be made self-protecting in the event of a quench. However, since the most critical area associatedmore » with high current density SC magnets is connected with quenching and training, a short experimental device will have to be built and tested. In this paper we discuss technical issues relevant to the construction of such a device, including a conceptual design, fields, and forces.« less
