Abstract

In recent years, several Nb3Sn high field magnet prototypes have been designed and tested in preparation for the LHC Luminosity upgrade and also for the potential Future Circular Collider (FCC). In this paper we present a Microsoft Excel-based database tool for storing magnet design parameters and results from quench protection tests. The hierarchical and flexible structure of the relational database allows for systematic and coherent analysis of the test data from different magnet assemblies and works as a practical reference for magnet design evolution. Data from quench protection heater tests in several high-field Nb3Sn magnet prototypes has been stored in the database. We use this data to validate the quench simulation assumptions used in FCC 16 T dipole magnet design.
