The design, fabrication, and tests of the new generation of superconducting magnets for the High Luminosity upgrade of the Large Hadron Collider (HL-LHC) require the support of an adequate sensing technology able to assure the integrity of the strain-sensitive and brittle superconducting cables through the whole service life of the magnet: assembly up to 150 MPa, cool down to 1.9 K, and powering up to about 16 kA. A precise temperature monitoring is also needed, in order to guarantee the safe working condition of the superconducting cables in the power transmission lines (SC-Link) designed to feed the magnet over long distance. Fiber Bragg Grating-based temperature and strain monitoring systems have been implemented in the first SC-Link prototype and in two subscale dipole magnets and tested in the cryogenic test facility at CERN, at 30 K, 77 K, and 1.9 K.

Abstract

The design, fabrication, and tests of the new generation of superconducting magnets for the High Luminosity upgrade of the Large Hadron Collider (HL-LHC) require the support of an adequate sensing technology able to assure the integrity of the strain-sensitive and brittle superconducting cables through the whole service life of the magnet: assembly up to 150 MPa, cool down to 1.9 K, and powering up to about 16 kA. A precise temperature monitoring is also needed, in order to guarantee the safe working condition of the superconducting cables in the power transmission lines (SC-Link) designed to feed the magnet over long distance. Fiber Bragg Grating-based temperature and strain monitoring systems have been implemented in the first SC-Link prototype and in two subscale dipole magnets and tested in the cryogenic test facility at CERN, at 30 K, 77 K, and 1.9 K.
