@lopta The cooling water is inside the thick, square copper conductors

@lopta It comes out through those green pipes and goes through a big chiller and pump eventually

@sjb Do you stagger the power-up to mitigate inrush current?

@lopta No, the magnet is an enormous inductor, so it's hard to get current to go in there quickly

@lopta Not usually needed - occasionally we add them if there is a ripple coming out of the magnet power supply
