 ==== Changing Terminal Energy ==== ==== Changing Terminal Energy ====
-1. Switch OVERVOLTAGE PROTECTION to DISABLE. +  - Put the Faraday cups in. 
-2. Switch the control mode to GVM. +  ​- ​Switch the control mode to GVM. 
- +  - Slowly turn the CONTROL GAIN to zero while watching the grid voltage If the grid voltage rises above -5 volts, reduce the CHARGING VOLTAGE to keep the grid voltage less than -5 volts, then continue reducing ​the CONTROL GAIN to zero. 
-3. Turn the CONTROL GAIN to zero. +  ​- ​To go to a higher energy move the CORONA PROBE POSITION ​"​OUT" ​while raising ​the CHARGING VOLTAGE.  ​**__NEVER__** ​allow the GRID VOLTAGE to go more negative than -VDC during this operation
- +  - To go to a lower energy move the CORONA PROBE POSITION "​IN"​ while lowering the CHARGING VOLTAGE ​**__NEVER__** allow the GRID VOLTAGE ​to go more negative than -5 VDC during this operation
-4. To go to a higher energy move the corona position ​"​OUT" ​and increase ​the CHARGING VOLTAGE.  ​NEVER allow the GRID VOLTAGE to go more negative than -10 VDC. +  - Set the TERMINAL VOLTAGE Dial to the desired valueThe dial is 2 turns per MV (set the dial to twice the GVM you want). You may have to add some upcharge after setting the dial
- +  - Raise the CONTROL GAIN to 2-3 for low current beams, around 5 for high current beamsThe system is now controlling in GVM mode. 
-5. Switch CHAIN MOTORS ​to OFF+  - Make fine adjustments to the TERMINAL VOLTAGE ​Dial to reach exactly the desired GVM value
-6. Switch POWER SUPPLIES ​to OFF+
- +
-7. Turn the TERMINAL VOLTAGE ​dial to zero+
