  The low-energy SCRF section of CW SC linac of Project X starts from Half Wave Resonators (HWR) having operating frequency f=162.5 MHz, optimal β= 0.11 and will accelerate the beam from 2 MeV up to 11 MeV. The preliminary analysis of beam dynamics shows that multipole effects caused by asymmetry of RF fields in HWR cavities aren’t negligible. In this paper we present the analysis of influence of multipole effects on beam dynamics and discuss the possible solutions how to compensate these effects.

  An alternative superconducting elliptical cavity is suggested for High Energy (HE) part of the Project X linac. The cavity is suitable to operate at CW regime with high beam current (10 mA), which is critical for Accelerator-Driven Subcritical (ADS) systems and for intense muon source for future Neutrino Factory or Muon Collider. We present the algorithm of the cavity shape optimization, comprehensive tolerances analysis and the solution for monopole High Order Modes (HOM) damping. Based on these results we estimated the probabilities of cryogenic losses per cryomodule and a growth of the beam longitudinal emittance due to the resonance excitation of monopole HOMs in the HE linac for Project X.

  This paper presents an analysis of beam losses along the current design of the FNAL 3 GeV superconducting cw linac. Simulations from the RFQ exit up to the end of the linac (~430 meters) are performed on the FermiGrid using the beam dynamics code TRACK. The impact of beam mismatch, element misalignments, and RF jitter on the beam dynamics is discussed and corresponding beam loss patterns are presented. A correction scheme to compensate for misalignments is described.

  Superconducting CW linac was proposed for Project X to accelerate H beam from 2.1 MeV to 3 GeV with nominal peak and average currents of respectively 5 mA and 1 mA. Linac built of 5 different families of resonators: half-wave, spoke (2), and elliptical (2) working at 162.5 MHz 325 MHz and 650 MHz to cover all energy range. Cavities and focusing elements are assembled in cryomodules. In baseline design all cryomodules are separated by short warm sections. It makes machine more reliable and maintainable and provide space for beam diagnostics and collimation. A long (~10m) gap between cryomodules at1 GeV is also being considered to provide space for beam extraction for nuclear experimental program. In paper we present the latest lattice of the linac baseline design and results of beam studies for this lattice. We briefly compare performance of the baseline design with alternative one without half-wave resonator section.

  Project-X is the proposed high intensity proton facility to be built at Fermilab in United States. First stage of the Project-X consists of H- superconducting linac (SC) which will be operated in continuous wave (CW) mode to accelerate the beam from kinetic energy of 2.1 MeV to 3 GeV. The operation in CW mode puts stringent tolerances on the beam line components, particularly at low energy section. The failure of beam line elements result in mismatch of the beam with the following sections due to different beam parameters than designed parameters. It makes the beam unstable which causes emittance dilution, and ultimately results in beam losses. In worst case, it can affect the reliability of the machine and may lead to the shutdown of the linac to replace the failed elements. Thus, it is important to study impacts of these effects and their compensation to restore linac performance to avoid beam interruption. This paper presents the studies performed for the failure of accelerating cavity and focusing magnets at the critical locations in the Project-X CW superconducting linac
