Wednesday November 2
During the day shift, operators reported that the New Muon Lab (NML) started a scheduled 15-minute power outage at 9:24 AM. Operators reported that MTA started a 40-minute scheduled power outage at 9:39 AM. A Linac person began a 30-minute pulse study at 10:20 AM. A Booster person began a pulse study at 10:38 AM. A MI person began a g minus 2 (g-2) study at 1:54 PM. MI personnel began a Recycler BPM study at 1:57 PM.
During the evening shift, the g-2 study ended at 4:32 PM. The Recycler BPM study ended.
Thursday November 3
The midnight shift began with Operations monitoring beam to the NuMI and MiniBooNE experiments .
During the midnight shift, at 7:16 AM, a Booster safety system detector alarmed high and tripped off; operators reset the system. A minute later the Booster safety system alarmed again, but this time due to a missed pulse; a Safety System person changed out the detector.
During the day shift, at 8:30 AM, Neutron Therapy Facility personnel began preparing to treat one patient later in the morning. A Booster person began a partial batch kicker study at 3:52 PM. MI personnel began a Recycler BPM study. Operators reported short downtimes due to a Linac RF station (LRF5).
During the evening shift, the Booster kicker study ended at 4:48 PM. The Recycler BPM study ended. At 7:39 PM, two I- Source vacuum pump power supplies tripped off; they reset. The NuMI beam permit tripped off at 8:34 PM due to a MI RF station (MIRF16) trip; everything reset. At 9:55 PM, the Preaccelerator temperature alarmed when the temperature dropped 20 degrees in an instant; about an hour later the temperature jumped back to normal. Operators searched and secured MTA at 11:38 PM.
Friday November 4
The midnight shift began with Operations sending beam to the NuMI and MiniBooNE experiments.
