  The European XFEL requires a high precision control of the electron beam, generating a specific pulsed laser light demanded by user experiments. The low level radio frequency (LLRF) control system is certainly one of the key players for the regulation of accelerating RF fields. A uTCA standard LLRF system was developed and is currently under test at DESY. Its first experimental results showed the system performance capabilities. Investigation of regulation limiting factors evidenced the need for control over fundamental cavity modes, which is done using complex controller structures and filter techniques. The improvement in measurement accuracy and detection bandwidth increased the regulation performance and contributed to integration of further control subsystems.
