Abstract:
The 10.6 GJ stored in the 27 Km LHC guide field must be managed with some care. This requires very reliable and accurate quench detection, prompt protection of the quenching elements, and harmless extraction of the remaining stored energy. An overview including cold diode technology, contrasts with the Tevatron, and current status of the system will be presented.
