Subject: Global Damping Update 

Brett and Kamal

The global damping testing for the week is now complete. The c1sus.mdl simulink diagram settled on the attached screenshot. The top level of c1sus.mdl is shown on the left zoomed in over the new global damping block. The right shows the inside of that block. Also attached in the second screenshot are two of the modal damping MEDM screens. The left shows the main overview screen, the right shows the global damping filters. The overview screen is called C1SUS_GLOBAL.adl and is found in ...medm/c1sus/master/.

We have measured transfer functions and power spectra that show that global damping, with just a moderate amount of tuning (30 minutes of work) reduces the OSEM damping noise seen by YARM_IN1 by a factor between 50 and 80. Log 8193 highlights the transfer function measurements. The power spectra directly measure the noise in the cavity. I am not putting that data here because I have to catch. I will process the data and post it here later.

Overall the global damping tests appear to have been successful, isolating (not removing) the test mass damping noise from the cavity by almost 2 orders of magnitude. Presumably even more isolation is possible with more tuning.
