Title Transient Magnetodynamic Finite Element Analysis of the ISIS M25/2 10Hz Kicker Magnet
Abstract In 2007 a second target station (TS2) was added to the ISIS pulsed neutron source at RAL. Two slow kicker magnets are operated in order to direct a 10Hz proton beam toward TS2 through the TS2 Extract Proton Beam line (EPB2). When first manufactured and tested, the M25/2 exhibited an unforeseen magnetic and thermal behaviour. It was quickly identified that this was caused by the eddy currents induced in the laminated core and the mechanical structure of the magnet. Corrective actions were taken to counterbalance their effects but no further analysis was performed at the time. Recent developments in hardware and software make this analysis more feasible. In this paper we present the results of the transient magnetodynamic simulation that was set up in order to model these eddy currents and study their impact on the M25/2 field quality.
