Title Technical report on the requirements for powder factor correction capacitors at Daresbury Laboratory
Abstract Daresbury Laboratory provides advanced scientific research facilities for a large community of scientists from both the U.K. and overseas in a whole variety of fields including life sciences, material studies, surface science and atomic and molecular science. The main facility at Daresbury is the Synchrotron Radiation Source (S.R.S.). This is an electron storage ring with an energy of 2GeV, producing synchrotron radiation from sixteen bending magnets and three insertion devices. During 1992-1994 a programme has been completed to replace the twenty-five year old magnet power convertors on the S.R.S., as they were expensive to maintain and their reliability was not acceptable for an accelerator required to deliver six thousand beam hours per hour. This report details the electrical engineering aspects associated with the installation of the new power convertors, namely power factor correction and harmonic distortion prevention.
