  The Canadian Light Source operates two superconducting wigglers: a 2 Tesla, 63 pole wiggler, and a 4 Tesla, 27 pole wiggler. Both SCWs have a negative impact on the injection efficiency. Beam based measurements indicate a larger than expected sextupole moment, and the 4T wiggler produces a large horizontal tune shift. To better understand these effects, computer models were developed for the SCWs using the magnetic modelling software package, RADIA. The RADIA models accurately predict the wiggler on-axis field strength and vertical tune shift. By introducing physical misalignments, the models can produce sextupole moments of the same order of magnitude as the measured quantities. However, the modelled horizontal tune shift is orders of magnitude smaller than the 4T wiggler’s observed tune shift. Various model parameters were investigated for their effect on horizontal tune shift, but the cause of the 4T wiggler’s large horizontal tune shift remains unknown.
