Generic Power Converter Test

This procedure describes the minimum list of tests applicable to all accelerator related power converter
  • check of required FESA equipment interfaces
  • check of applicable statuses and interlocks
  • check device being in 'OP ready' state
  • Some variable definition (to be shifted to LSA/device specific variables)



Step S? short description Criteria
prepare init device status handler
step1 check for required FESA Status interface
step2 check for powerState being 'ON'
step3 check for device status field being 'OK'
step4 check for pending device interlocks
step5 check whether device is in remote control mode
step6 Y check whether device has an 'true' OP status
step7 Y check I_MIN & I_MAX consistency with LSA (if available) DEFAULT_CURRENT_TOLERANCE
(N.B. S?: skippable task: yes can be skipped by operator (or converted to warning in sequencer's 'lenient mode')
