I didn't have any success with the ASC tonight. I copied over the filters that Koji had used in elog 8562, and put them in the new ASC filter banks (and turned them off in the SUS-PRM_ASCYAW bank). I also moved all the old scripts that were in .../scripts/ASC to an OLD subdirectory (the most recent edit is from 2009 sometime). I then copied over the up and down scripts that Koji had written for his ASC test into the ..../scripts/ASC directory, and modified them to work with my new channels.
I then tried locking, and wasn't very successful. Actually, my best lock, ~4 minutes, including tweaking up the PRM alignment, was when the ASC path was off (even though I thought it was on). After discovering my mistake, I tried locking for another hour or so, but haven't really gotten anywhere. The lock stretches I'm getting are rarely long enough for me to get to the terminal and run my up script, and the maybe ~6 or 7 times I've been able to run it, I haven't converged toward finding a good gain value for the PRC yaw loop. At some point, I redid the MICH alignment since it had drifted away a bit, but that didn't really help.
I think that one of the next things I might try is carrier-locking the PRMI, to find okay loop gain settings for the ASC path. Since the QPD output is already normalized (I'd have to custom-make some electronics to make it non-normalized), I think the gain should be the same for both carrier and sideband lock cases.
Once I finally get a good, stable, PRMI sideband lock, I think I need to take the following measurements:
* CTRL and ERR spectra for MICH and PRCL
* TFs for MICH and PRCL loops
* Sensing matrix, including AS55, REFL11, REFL33, REFL55, POX and POY.
