- Michael Bieler (DESY)
Rebuilding and updating the Fermilab Main Control Room to increase efficiency and aesthetics, and to enable easier future upgrades.
The Cern Control Centre has been built to control the CERN accelerator complex in the LHC era. The main objective was having all specialists in the same room to efficiently operate the LHC beams, among all other physics programs. The main challenge of this project was
centralizing 4 different operation units working for the same objectives. The choice of the layout was paramount for an...
INTRODUCTION: designed and built in the first decade of the new Millennium, the fully digital PSI Main Control Room has now been in Operation for over a decade.
During this period demands on infrastructure and services have constantly risen.
METHODS: Designed for an estimated thermal power of 12kW, our cooling systems today have to handle 18kW of waste heat.
The installed system with...
