Abstract

Storage ring light sources aim for a high operation reliability. Very often the beam availability is used as the operation metrics to measure the reliability of the accelerator. A survey of several light sources revealed that the calculation of this statistics varies significantly between the facilities. This prevents a useful comparison of their reliabilities. The authors propose a specific metrics for the reliability of storage ring light sources; a metrics that will allow a detailed and meaningful comparison of these particle accelerators.
