These are the slides for a presentation given at 4:00 PM in One West on May 22, 2007.

We are preparing to install 24 new corrector magnet packages in the Booster long straights during the 2007 accelerator shutdown and 24 in the Booster short straights in 2008. Very substantial contributions to developing and producing the components of this new corrector system are being made by several departments here at the lab. This presentation will present an overview of the elements of the new system.

To better control the beam position, tune, and chromaticity in the Fermilab Booster synchrotron, a new package of six corrector elements has been designed, incorporating both normal and skew orientations of dipole, quadrupole, and sextupole magnets. The devices are under construction and will be installed in 48 locations in the Booster accelerator. Each of these 288 corrector magnets will be individually powered. Each of the magnets will be individually controlled using operator programmed current ramps designed specifically for the each type of Booster acceleration cycle. This presentation will provide an overview of the corrector magnet installation in the accelerator enclosure, power and sensor interconnections, specifications for the switch-mode power supplies, rack and equipment layouts, controls and interlock electronics, and the features of the operator interface for programming the current ramps and adjusting the timing of the system triggers.
