  The SwissFEL facility will produce coherent, bright, and short photon pulses covering a wavelength range down to an angstrom, requiring an emittance between 0.18 to 0.43 mm mrad at bunch charges between 10 pC and 200 pC. In nominal operation continuous changes in this range will be offered to the users to allow an individual tradeoff between photon power and pulse length. The facility consists of a S-band RF-gun, booster, and a C-band main linac, which accelerates the beam up to 5.8 GeV. Two compression chicanes will provide a nominal peak current of about 1 to 3 kA depending on the charge. The stability of RF systems is a key design issue for stable compression schemes at reliable user facilies. In this paper different operation modes are presented and discussed in terms of machine stability requirements.
