Subject: Trying coil actuation balance 

[Paco, Anchal]

  • We decided to try out the coil actuation balancing after seeing some posts from Gautum about the same on PRM and ETMY.
  • We used diaggui to send swept sine excitation signal to C1:SUS-MC3_ULCOIL_EXC and read it back at C1:SUS-MC3_ASCPIT_IN1. Idea was to create transfer function measurements similar to 15880.
  • We first tried taking the transfer function with excitation amplitude 0f 1, 10, 50, 200 with damping loops on (swept from 10 to 100 Hz lograthmically in 20 points).
  • We found no meaningful measurement and looked like we were just measuring noise.
  • We concluded that it is probably because our damping loops are damping all the excitation down.
  • So we decided to switch off damping and retry.
  • We switched off: C1:SUS-MC3_SUSPOS_SW2 , C1:SUS-MC3_SUSPIT_SW2, C1:SUS-MC3_ASCPIT_SW2, C1:SUS-MC3_ASCYAW_SW2, C1:SUS-MC3_SUSYAW_SW2, and C1:SUS-MC3_SUSSIDE_SW2.
  • We repeated teh above measurements going up in amplitudes of excitation as 1, 10, 20. We saw the oscillation going out of UL_COIL but the swept sine couldn't measure any meaningful transfer function to C1:SUS-MC3_ASCPIT_IN1. So we decided to just stop. We are probably doing something wrong.

Trying to go back to same state:

  • We switch on: C1:SUS-MC3_SUSPOS_SW2 , C1:SUS-MC3_SUSPIT_SW2, C1:SUS-MC3_ASCPIT_SW2, C1:SUS-MC3_ASCYAW_SW2, C1:SUS-MC3_SUSYAW_SW2, and C1:SUS-MC3_SUSSIDE_SW2.
  • But C1:SUS-MC3_ASCYAW_INMON had accumulated about 600 offset and was distrupting the alignment. We switched off C1:SUS-MC3_ASCYAW_SW2 hoping the offset will go away once the optic is just damped with OSEM sensors, but it didn't.
  • Even after minutes, the offset in C1:SUS-MC3_ASCYAW_INMON kept on increasing and crossed beyond 2000 counts limit set in C1:IOO-MC3_YAW filter bank.
  • We tried to unlock the IMC and lock it back again but the offset still persisted.
  • We tried to add bias in YAW DOF by increasing C1:SUS-MC3_YAW_OFFSET, and while it was able to somewhat reduce the WFS C1:SUS-MC3_ASCYAW_INMON offset  but it was misalgning the optic and the lock was lost. So we retracted the bias to 0 and made it zero.
  • We tried to track back where the offset is coming from. In C1IOO_WFS_MASTER.adl, we opened the WFS2_YAW filter bank to see if the sensor is indeed reading the increasing offset.
  • It is quite weird that C1:IOO-WFS2_YAW_INMON is just oscillating but the output in this WFS2_YAW filter bank is slowly increasing offset.
  • We tried to zero the gain and back to 0.1 to see if some holding function is causing it, but that was not the case. The output went back to high negative offset and kept increasing.
  • We don't know what else to do. Only this one WFS YAW output is increasing, everything else is at normal level with no increasing offset or peculiar behavior.
  • We are leaving C1:SUS-MC3_ASCYAW_SW2 off as it is disrupting the IMC lock.

[Jon walked in, asked him for help]

  • Jon suggested to do burt restore on IOO channels.
  • We used (selected through burtgooey):
    burtwb -f /opt/rtcds/caltech/c1/burt/autoburt/snapshots/2021/Mar/19/08:19/c1iooepics.snap -l /tmp/controls_1210319_113410_0.write.log -o /tmp/controls_1210319_113410_0.nowrite.snap -v <
  • No luck, the problem persists.
