ALICE is an experimental electron accelerator designed to operate over a range of energies up to 35 MeV, and with up to 80 pC bunch charge. A dedicated tomography diagnostic section allows measurement of the transverse phase space with different beam parameters. In the low-energy, high-charge regime, space charge effects must be considered: to quantify these effects, the tracking code GPT has been used to simulate beams in the tomography diagnostic section. The results can be compared with simplified models, and with experimental measurements.
