Abstract

A 714-MHz RF system for the Accelerator Test Facility (ATF) damping ring has been constructed and commissioned. The RF system comprises two higher-order-mode (HOM) damped cavities, a 50-kW klystron, a WR-1150 waveguide network and low-level RF electronics. By using HOM-damped cavities, longitudinal and transverse coupled-bunch instabilities can be avoided even at a maximum beam current of 600 mA. A low-level control scheme, which can manage heavy transient beam loading, was designed, and a subset of the system was implemented. We report in this paper the construction and commissioning of this RF system.
