  The 1GeV SPring-8 linac is an injector for the SPring-8 synchrotron radiation storage ring with 8GeV booster synchrotron. In recent years, backup systems were installed to eliminate long-time interruption of the beam injections: The main gun system is usually operated, and the second gun is always pre-heated and can inject electron beams into a buncher section with an interval of several minutes in case the main gun failed. The first klystron, that feeds RF powers to the buncher system and the downstream klystrons, can be relieved by the next klystron with an interval of about 20 minutes by switching the waveguide circuit. When one of the eleven working klystrons faults, one of standby klystrons, which are kept for hot spares on line, is automatically activated to accelerate beams instead of the failed one without beam interruption. The total downtime in FY2012 was 0.12% in top-up operation user time. The averaged fault frequency was 0.2 times per day.

  To realize the SACLA, it is necessary to obtain stabilities of 10-4 and 50 fs in the amplitude and time of an acceleration voltage, respectively. The achievement of the rf stabilities were almost satisfactory for the target values. Consequently, the 7 GeV beam energy stability was 0.02% (std.) or less. However, there was XFEL power variation caused by a variation of a beam position in a 40 MeV injector section. A periodically changed beam position of 40 μm (std.) was found out at a cycle of 2 s by Fourier transform method using BPM data. The temperatures of all the injector rf cavities are controlled within 28±0.04˚C by a controller using the cooling water. The AC power supplies of the controller to heat the cooling water are operated at 0.5 Hz by pulse width modulation control with alternatively turning on or off. The strong correlation between laser intensity variation and the modulation frequency of the AC power supplies was found out. We are planning to improve the cavity temperature variation in the order of less than 0.01˚C with DC power supplies to establish continuously regulated the cavity temperature. This plan will reduce the XFEL power variation.
