NSLS-II Electrical Engineering Group Leader, Accelerator Systems Division
George Ganetis is the head of the Electrical Engineering Group for the Accelerator Division of NSLS II. He is responsible for the design, construction, installation, and commissioning of power supplies, electrical utilities, and misc. electrical systems for the Accelerator Division. George has been an engineer with BNL for over 30 years and has managed electrical engineering groups for over 20 years. George managed the final design, procurements, installation, and commissioning of the magnet electrical systems for RHIC. This involved 1800 superconducting magnet elements, 980 power supplies, a 2000-channel quench detection system, 260 quench protection switches, and diagnostic and monitoring systems. He managed a group which ranged between 25 to 70 people which reached a peak at the height of RHIC installation. He also managed the design and implementation of production magnetic field measurements systems used for RHIC magnet production.
George has a Bachelors of Science in Electrical Engineering form Pratt Institute, New York. He has received Brookhaven National Laboratory Engineering Award – January, 2003 and was a co-recipient of the R&D 100 Award in 1988 for “the Mole” Magnetic Field Measurement Device.
