The RF system for the Pohang Light Source (PLS) storage ring was upgraded for PLS-II project of 3.0GeV/400mA from 2.5GeV/200mA. the RF system is commissioning with five normal conducting(NC) RF cavities at total maximum RF power of 280kW to the cavities with two 300kW klystron and two 75kW klystron amplifiers in 2011. The super conducting(SC) cavities will be installed on August 2012 because of long delivery. Therefore three NC RF cavities will be replaced with two SC cavities with cryomodules, and operated with cryogenics, digital low level, and 300kW klystron high power system. Also we are preparing the third SC cavity stand to increase the storage ring current up to 400mA with all insertion devices operation. This paper describes the present installation, commissioning, operation status, upgrade progress, and future plan of the RF system for the upgraded project of PLS-II storage ring.

The main part of the Installation for the PLS-II upgrade was finished in June and is on the way to user operation through elaborate commissioning. Up to now, the achievement is 150 mA beam current at 3 GeV with multi-bunch mode with 5 normal conducting cavities which served in the PLS before. After installation of 2 SRF cavities in the summer of 2012, the PLS-II will have 300 mA beam current with 20 IDs by 2 superconducting RF cavities until July, 2014. Finally, one more superconducting cavity will be added in August, 2014, and beam current will rise to 400 mA. The two SRF cavities are under test and conditioning. The two main subsystems, SRF cavities and ceramic windows were tested independently to confirm their performance. Each cavity recorded its accelerating voltage as 3.27 MV and 3.24 MV at 4.2K, respectively. Two RF windows also passed their specification, 300 kW CW traveling wave and 150 kW CW standing wave. The preliminary tests of SRF cryomodules are reported in the presentation.
