Life and works of Dr. Richard Furman, D.D. : being a compilation of biographical tributes on, and sermons, addresses and circular letters by Richard Furman( Book )

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Richard Furman (1755-1825) was one of the most prominent Baptist ministers in the early years of America, and his works are here printed for the fist tiem in nearly two centuries. The first part of the book includes a compilation of tributes and biographies from the past. The second part contains Furman's own works, consisting of sermons, letters, and addresses
First-principles simulation and comparison with beam tests for transverse instabilities and damper performance in the Fermilab Main Injector( )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An end-to-end performance calculation and comparison with beam tests was performed for the bunch-by-bunch digital transverse damper in the Fermilab Main Injector. Time dependent magnetic wakefields responsible for ''Resistive Wall'' transverse instabilities in the Main Injector were calculated with OPERA-2D using the actual beam pipe and dipole magnet lamination geometry. The leading order dipole component was parameterized and used as input to a bunch-by-bunch simulation which included the filling pattern and injection errors experienced in high-intensity operation of the Main Injector. The instability growth times, and the spreading of the disturbance due to newly misinjected batches was compared between simulations and beam data collected by the damper system. Further simulation models the effects of the damper system on the beam
The 100,000 amp dc power supply for a staged hadron collider superferric magnet( )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A 1.5 volt 100,000 amp DC switcher power supply was developed for testing a superferric magnet string at FNAL. This supply was used during testing as both the ramping supply and holding supply powering a single magnet load with a total load resistance of 0.7{micro} Ohms. The supply consists of ten paralleled switcher cells, powered by a 400 volt/600 Amp DC power supply. Each cell consists of an IGBT H-bridge driving a step-down transformer at a switching frequency of 2 kHz. The transformer has an effective turns ratio of 224:1. The secondary consists of 32 parallel single-turn full wave rectifier windings. The rectification is done with 64 Shottky diodes. Each cell is rated at 1.5 volts/10,000 amps. During this test each cell was operated as a constant power source without load current or field feedback. This paper will describe the design of the switcher cell and control system used during testing. We will also describe the next level of improvements to the current feedback system to improve the ramp control
