Title: THE CONVENTIONAL FACILITIES REQUIREMENTS FOR THE SNS LINAC

The Spallation Neutron Source (SNS) linac has a high gradient and 2 MW of beam power, and it therefore requires substantial RF power and cooling. There are 94 klystrons in its RF system, a large number for a proton linac. The optimization process and logic that lead to the klystron, transmitter, and power supply sizes is discussed. We also describe the requirements for building and tunnel area, electrical power, and water for this system. The trade-off decisions between low capital cost, low operating cost, and good maintainability are described.
