Abstract STFC Daresbury Laboratory is developing CLARA (Compact Linear Accelerator for Research and Applications), a novel FEL (Free Electron Laser) test facility focussed on the generation of ultra-short photon pulses of coherent light with high levels of stability and synchronisation. The main motivation for CLARA is to test new FEL schemes that can later be implemented on existing and future short wavelength FELs. Particular focus will be on ultra-short pulse generation, pulse stability, and synchronisation with external sources. Knowledge gained from the development and operation of CLARA will inform the aims and design of a future UK-XFEL. To aid in the development of high level physics software, EPICS, a distributed controls framework, and ASTRA, a particle tracking code have been combined to simulate the facility as a virtual accelerator.
