Title: RF transient analysis and stabilization of the phase and energy of the proposed PIP-II LINAC

Abstract

Here, this paper describes a recent effort to develop and benchmark a simulation tool for the analysis of RF transients and their compensation in an H- linear accelerator. Existing tools in this area either focus on electron LINACs or lack fundamental details about the LLRF system that are necessary to provide realistic performance estimates. In our paper we begin with a discussion of our computational models followed by benchmarking with existing beam-dynamics codes and measured data. We then analyze the effect of RF transients and their compensation in the PIP-II LINAC, followed by an analysis of calibration errors and how a Newton’s Method based feedback scheme can be used to regulate the beam energy to within the specified limits.
