Abstract
THERE IS A NEED FOR RELIABLE, HIGH EFFICIENCY PUMPS TO CIRCULATE HELIUM THROUGH SUPERCONDUCTING MAGNETS IN THE PROPOSED SUPERCONDUCTING SUPER COLLIDER (SSC). THE PUMPS MUST BE CAPABLE OF OPERATING OVER A RANGE OF CONDITIONS TO ACCOMMODATE A VARIETY OF SYSTEM OPERATIONS. THIS PROJECT ISAIMED AT THE DEVELOPMENT OF A HIGH SPEED HELIUM PUMP WITH INDUSTRIAL-LEVEL ROBUSTNESS TO MEET THE SSC REQUIREMENTS. IN PHASE I, THE PRELIMINARY DESIGN AND PREDICTED PERFORMANCEOF THE PUMPS WILL BE ESTABLISHED. IN PHASE II, ONE OR MORE PROTOTYPES WOULD BE BUILT AND TESTED TO DEMONSTRATE COMPLIANCE WITH OPERATING REQUIREMENTS.
