Operation Terminology

RF gap envelope

This is the RF voltage that is present on the gaps of the cavity beam tube that accelerate the beam. There are two gap monitors on each cavity and are referred to as upstream and downstream. They both read the same gap voltage and should present readings that are within 2% accuracy.
