The SRM qpd was moved to accommodate the HeNe laser qualification test for LIGO Oplev use.

The qpd was saturating at 65,000 counts of 3 mW

ND1 filter lowering the power by 10 got rid of saturation. I epoxied an adapter ring to the qpd.

Atm3 was taken before saturation was realized with Koji's help.

Atm4 ND1 on SRM qpd. Now it is working and everything is moving.

Q and Steve will follow elog 10028 entry to prepare the vacuum system for safe reboot

Here's the sequence of the morning so far:

  • I aligned the IFO (IR arms with ASS, X green with PZTs, PRM with PRMI locked on REFL33)
  • I closed the PSL shutter, and went inside to align PRM and both ITM oplevs (all others were within 10urad of zero in both directions)
  • While aligning those oplevs, I noticed the smell of burnt electronics. We tracked it down to the +15V sorensen in the rack nearest the PSL table
    • I claim the precipitating event was PSL shutter activity. If I recall correctly, the seismic rainbow traces went bonkers around the same time as the shutter was closed. There is a Guralp interface in the rack powered by the failed sorensen, so this would explain the erratic seismometer signals correlated with the power supply failure. We will look into potential shorts caused by the shutter. (Steve looked up the PMC trans and Guralp DQ channels, and confirmed the temporal coincidence of the events.)
  • We shut off all of the sorensens so that electronics were not being driven asymmetrically. 
  • Steve and I secured the vacuum system for computer reboots, as referred to in Steve's elog. Some combination of Jenne, Rana and Manasa shut down the control room computers, and turned off the watchdogs. 
  • Manasa and I moved Chiara inside, next to Mafalda, along with its backup HDs. It has been labeled. 
  • Booted up control room machines, they came up happy. 
  • FB and front-ends didn't need reboot, for some lucky reason. Watchdogs came back happily, oplev spots didn't move noticeably. 

The IFO is still down, as the PMC won't lock without the rack power, and we haven't pinned down the shorting mechanism. We don't want the replacement sorensen to immediately blow when plugged in. 

  Smoking Sorensen could have triggered the smoke alarm!

 Yesterday I called CIT Fire Protection Services very first to deactivate the sensors temporarily. The smoke alarm was turned back on right after the particle count dropped.

 Their phone number is posted at the entry doors 104M and 104W as shown below.

Steve checked the vacuum and everything looks fine with the vacuum system.

PSL Innolight laser and the 3 units of IFO air conditions turned on.

The vacuum system reaction to losing power: V1 closed and Maglev shut down. Maglev is running on 220VAC so it is not connected to VAC-UPS.  V1 interlock was triggered by Maglev "failure" message.

Maglev was reset and started. After Chiara was turned on manually I could bring up the vac control screen through Nodus and opened V1

"Vacuum Normal" valve configuration was recovered instantly.

There was an equipment malfunction in one of Pasadena's substation that caused the outage. After about an 8 second delay, back up circuits restored power. This affected about 1/2 of the campus.

Hi Mike,

Can you tell me about yesterday's power outage?

Thanks, Steve
  10579   Tue Oct 7 16:55:16 2014 SteveUpdateVACUnexpected sweaty valves

 Pump  spool valves V5, V4, V3 sweating a lot. VM3 and VC2 not so much.

They are VAT valves F28-62887-03, 11, 14 and so on ~15-16 years old.

 I'm speculating that some plastic is aging-braking down at the atmospheric-pneumatic side of valves.
The vacuum side is not effected, according to vacuum pressure readings.

May be some condensation from the small turbos? No

I'm looking for an identical valve to examine, but I can not find one.

We are using industrial grade 99.96% Nitrogen to actuate these valves.

Valves are not effected are  dry: VA6, V6, V7 and all annuloses.

VAT's answer:

Yes, our engineers are aware of this issue.  They say:

The pneumatic actuator needs lubricant as the O-ring (Viton) slides in the cylinder. Without grease the O-ring would be abraded and leaking after only a relatively few cycles.  The lubricant used in our pneumatic actuators is an emulsion of oil and Teflon flakes.   Vibration, many cycles and sometimes high temperature lead to the separation of the oil and Teflon.   That is apparently the issue you are seeing.

VAT is and has been testing and qualifying new lubricants, and this is one of the factors we are always looking to improve.  The formula we used 15 years ago in these valves seems to have performed reasonable  well.  Our formula today should perform even better.

We realize this explanation does not help you with these existing valves, but 15 years of service is not too bad is it? 

Steve -NOTE:bonnet seal is metal so there is no way this oil can get into our vacuum ( only if the bellow leaks )

 We are pumping again. This is a temporary configuration. The annuloses are at atmosphere. The reset reboot of c1Vac1 and 2 opened everything except the valves that were disconnected.

TP2 lost it's vent solenoid power supply and dry pump during the power outage.

They were replaced but the new small turbo controller is not set up as the old TP2 was so it does not allow V4 to open. 

Tomorrow I will swap back the old controller,  pump down the annuloses and close off the ion pumps.

I removed the beam block from the PSL table and opened the shutter. CC4 has the real pressure 2e-5 Torr

 I have brought back c1auxex and c1auxey.  Hopefully this elog will have some more details to add to Rana's elog 10015, so that in the end, we have the whole process documented.

The old Dell computer was already in a Minicom session, so I didn't have to start that up - hopefully it's just as easy as opening the program.

I plugged the DB9-RJ45 cable into the top of the RJ45 jacks on the computers.  Since the aux end station computers hadn't had their bootChanges done yet, the prompt was "VxWorks Boot" (or something like that).  For a computer that was already configured, for example the psl machine, the prompt was "c1psl", the name of the machine.  So, the indication that work needs to be done is either you get the Boot prompt, or the computer starts to hang while it's trying to load the operating system (since it's not where the computer expects it to be).  If the computer is hanging, key the crate again to power cycle it.  When it gets to the countdown that says "press any key to enter manual boot" or something like that, push some key.  This will get you to the "VxWorks Boot" prompt. 

Once you have this prompt, press "?" to get the boot help menu.  Press "p" to print the current boot parameters (the same list of things that you see with the bootChange command when you telnet in).  Press "c" to go line-by-line through the parameters with the option to change parameters.  I discovered that you can just type what you want the parameter to be next to the old value, and that will change the value.  (ex.  "host name   : linux1   chiara"   will change the host name from the old value of linux1 to the new value that you just typed of chiara). 

After changing the appropriate parameters (as with all the other slow computers, just the [host name] and the [host inet] parameters needed changing), key the crate one more time and let it boot.  It should boot successfully, and when it has finished and given you the name for the prompt (ex. c1auxex), you can just pull out the RJ45 end of the cable from the computer, and move on to the next one.

Preparation to reboot:

1, closed VA6, V5 disconnected cable to valves ( closed all annuloses )

2, closed V1, disconnected it and stopped Maglev rotation

3, closed V4, disconnected its cable

   See Atm1,  This set up is insured us so there can not be any accidental valve switching to vent the vacuum envelope if reboot-caos strikes.[moving=disconnected]

4, RESET c1Vac1 and c1Vac2 one by one and together. They both went at once. We did NOT power recycled.

    Jenne entered the new "carma" words on  the old Dell laptop and checked the good answers. The reboot was done.

    Note: c1Vac1 green-RUN indicator LED is yellow. It is fine as yellow.

5, Checked and TOGGLED valve positions to be correct value ( We did not correct the the small turbo pumps monitor positions, but they  were alive )

6,  V4 was reconnected and opened. Maglev was started.

7,  V1 cable reconnected and opened at full rotation speed of 560 Hz

8,  V5 cable reconnected,  valve opened..............VA6 cable connected and opened........

9,   Vacuum Normal valve configuration was reached.

 

 Yesterday's  reboot was prepared as stated above with one difference. 

  c1Vac1 and c1Vac2 were DOWN before reset. The disconnected valves stayed closed (plus VC1) . This saved us, so the main volume was not vented.

  All others OPENED. PR1 and PR2  rouphing pumps turned ON.  Ion pumps gate valve opened too. The ion pumps did not matter either because they were pump down recently.

  We'll have to rewrite how to reboot vacuum.

Post 30-40min unexpected power outage this morning, Steve checked the status of the vacuum and I powered up Chiara.

I brought back the FE machines and keyed all the crates to bring back the slow machines but for the vac computers.

c1vac1 is not responding as of now. All other computers have come back and are alive.

 

 IFO vacuum, air condition and PMC HV are still down. PSL out put beam is blocked on the table.

 We are pumping again. This is a temporary configuration. The annuloses are at atmosphere. The reset reboot of c1Vac1 and 2 opened everything except the valves that were disconnected.

TP2 lost it's vent solenoid power supply and dry pump during the power outage.

They were replaced but the new small turbo controller is not set up as the old TP2 was so it does not allow V4 to open. 

Tomorrow I will swap back the old controller,  pump down the annuloses and close off the ion pumps.

I removed the beam block from the PSL table and opened the shutter. CC4 has the real pressure 2e-5 Torr  

CC1 is not real.

 Tp2 is controlled by old controller. Annuloses pumped down. Valve configuration: "vacuum normal "

  Ion pumps closed at  <1e-4 mT
