Improved Efficiency of Maintaining Facility Systems Serving the World’s Most Powerful Laser

Improved Efficiency of Maintaining Facility Systems Serving the World’s Most Powerful Laser

IMC-2016 Focused Forum - 32:41
by David Hippie and Igor Maslennikov, Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory

The National Ignition Facility (NIF) at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) is the world's most powerful laser and it is used for experiments at extreme pressures, temperature, and densities. This laser has 192 laser beams delivering 1.8 megajoules (500 terawatts) of energy onto targets for inertial confinement fusion research which supports national security, frontier science, and sustainable energy missions. Due to the highly stringent physics and operational requirements of the NIF, the supporting facility systems must be maintained and operated in a highly reliable manner. The NIF Facilities and Infrastructure Systems group is using various Uptime Elements™ to reduce unplanned repairs and improve the efficiency of maintenance activities. This presentation will provide specific examples of how we are using those Uptime Elements™.
