Scaling factors are calculated with the following root macro (with documentation):
Other relevant input and output files can also be found in the same directory.
The scaling factors currently in use for the inner quadrant, are (by superlayer):
SL Scaling factors
Scaling factors for the other three quadrants are listed in:
The computation is done like this: I1_limit = I1_global * (#_wires/150) * scaling_factor
(currently I1_global is equal to 90 uA).
