  The Pohang Light Source (PLS) has operated for 14 years successfully. To meet the request of the increasing user community, the PLS-II that is the upgrade project of PLS has been completed. Main goals of the PLS-II are to increase beam energy to 3 GeV, to increase number of insertion devices by the factor of two (20 IDs), to increase beam current to 400 mA and to reduce beam emittance below 10 nm with existing PLS tunnel and injection system. The PLS-II had been commissioned over the six months. During commissioning, we achieved 14 insertion devices operation and top-up operation with 100 mA beam current and 5.8 nm beam emittance. In this presentation, we report the experimental results from the PLS-II commissioning.

  This paper reports on the recent status of the Pohang Light Source (PLS)-II linac at Pohang Accelerator Laboratory (PAL). From 2009, the linac upgrade has been started increasing its energy from 2.5 GeV to 3 GeV aiming stable top-up mode operation. First, we show that the stability status of the two different types of modulators to meet the top-up condition which requires very stable modulator system in linac. Next, we introduce upgrade status those differ from their PLS (2.5 GeV) such as installation of the dual vacuum systems for the electron gun to replace it immediately, adding important diagnostic tools, and reutilization of the beam analysis system just after pre-injector. Finally we present the electron beam parameters measured by those diagnostic system.

The Pohang Accelerator Laboratory (PAL) had started the upgrade project (called PLS-II) of the Pohang Light Source (PLS) from 2009 for increasing its energy from 2.5 GeV to 3 GeV and changing the operation mode from fill-up to top-up mode. Top-up mode operation requires high energy stability of the linac beam and machine reliability in the linac modulator systems. For providing the additional 0.5 GeV energy from the 2.5 GeV PLS linac, we added four units of the modulator system. We have two different types of the pulse modulator system for using existing pulse modulators, thyristor control type, in the upgrade project (PLS-II). The two types are thyristor control type and inverter power type. In the thyristor control type, a de-Qing system controls the modulator pulse forming network (PFN) charging voltage stability, and in the inverter power supply type, CCPS provides highly stable charging voltage to the modulator. We will present development and management of the pulse modulator system for obtaining machine reliability and stability from 3.0 GeV linac.
