    • ALBA synchrotron cooling system evaluation using flowmaster® 

      Quispe, Marcos; Escaler Puigoriol, Francesc Xavier; Prieto, Montserrat; Kjeldsen, Morten (2015-06-22)
      Article
      Open Access
      ALBA is a 3rd generation Synchrotron Light facility in Barcelona, Spain. Made up of a complex network of electron accelerators that produce synchrotron light, it allows for the visualization of the atomic structure of ...
    • Numerical simulation of the alba synchrotron light source cooling system response for failure prevention 

      Escaler Puigoriol, Francesc Xavier; Casas, Joan; Colldelram, Carles; Quispe, Marcos; Prieto Moline, María Montserrat (2016)
      Conference lecture
      Open Access
      The ALBA Synchrotron Light Source cooling system is designed with a common return pipe that interconnects the four consumption rings. Such configuration is believed to compromise its optimal operation. To understand its ...
    • Numerical simulation of the alba synchrotron light source cooling system response to pump start-up and shut-down 

      Escaler Puigoriol, Francesc Xavier; Casas, Joan; Colldelram, Cales; Quispe, Marcos; Prieto Moline, María Montserrat (2016)
      Conference lecture
      Open Access
      The ALBA Synchrotron Light Source cooling system is submitted to regular pump start-ups and shut-downs. Moreover, pumps can trip due to motor power failures. As a result, the piping system can be subjected to surges and ...
    • Thermo-fluid numerical simulation of the crotch absorbers’ cooling pinholes for alba storage ring 

      Escaler Puigoriol, Francesc Xavier; Arbó, Victor; Casas, Joan; Colldelram, Carles; Quispe, Marcos; Prieto Moline, María Montserrat (2016)
      Conference lecture
      Open Access
      The ALBA Synchrotron Light Facility crotch absorbers, that remove the unused storage ring radiation, incorporate an internal cooling system composed by a number of parallel pinholes and by the corresponding stainless steel ...
