Development of a versatile control system

Trainee: Adélaïde Grimaud
Supervisor: Andreja Smole

Crucial for any accelerator based research facility is an efficient integration of all experiments, beam handling and transport systems, and the various diagnostics into a powerful control system. This includes online capability, fast data exchange, history and error login, as well as device access across the entire accelerator facility and the experiments.

A versatile control system that will link between all technical and experiment developments within AVA will be developed within this project. The primary goal is to enable enhanced communication between all essential devices to enhance accelerator and experiment performance. It will include work on a flexible machine control system, hard real-time feedback and the development of a precise timing system.
