  The European Synchrotron Radiation Facility (ESRF) is presently midway through the Upgrade Programme Phase I (2009-2015), which concerns its infrastructure, beamlines and X-ray source. This paper reports on the present operation performance of the source, highlighting the more recent developments. In this context, 8 insertion device straight sections have been lengthened from five to six metres; two of them operating with canted undulators. The lattice of one cell has been modified for a further increase to 7 metres allowing the test of a mini beta optics and latter the distribution of cavities. A second cryogenic permanent magnet undulator has been completed, which gives a factor of more than 2 in flux at high energy. The booster klystron-based radio frequency transmitter has been replaced by high power solid state amplifiers. Out of three prototypes of HOM damped cavities working at room temperature which have been received and tested, one has been successfully commissioned with beam. Subsequent to the upgrade of the beam position monitor system, a new orbit feedback has substantially reduced the orbit distortion induced by ID gap motions.

Four 352.2 MHz - 150 kW Solid State Amplifiers (SSA), based on the SOLEIL design and supplied by ELTA/AREVA, are in operation on the ESRF booster since April 2012. A number of interesting effects were observed during commissioning that are inherent to the combination of many RF amplifier modules at high power. While it has only little impact on the booster SSA operated in pulsed regime, some modifications were necessary for the three SSAs that will be delivered by ELTA for an operation in CW on the storage ring. In parallel, the ESRF is developing a more compact SSA using cavity combiners *) instead of the widely adopted coaxial combiner trees. The status of this R&D project will also be reported.
