Proton Source Dept. Booster Linac
Proton Improvement Plan - PIP

Welcome to Proton Improvement Plan Web Page


Objectives:

Develop and implement a plan to meet the targets for proton source throughput, while maintaining good availability and acceptual residual activation.
The plan must address hardware modifications to increase repetition rate and improve beam loss while
ensuring viable operation of the Linac through 2023, and the Booster through 2030. S. Nagaitsev, Sept. 2014

Goal::

PIP should enable Linac/Booster to:
Deliver 2.3E17 protons per hour @ 15 Hz
while maintaining Linac/Booster availabilty > 85%
and residual activation at acceptable levels. S. Nagaitsev, Sept. 2014

Transition from PIP to PIP-II::

In addition, the plan should antecipate a transition to the new PIP-II linac in 2023, with which Booster will be expected to
deliver 4.7E17 protons per hour @ 20 Hz. S. Nagaitsev, Sept. 2014
