  With the expansion of the radiation source ELBE a center for high power radiation sources is being built at the Helmholtz Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR). In a first step (January 2012) the available CW RF-power (1.3 GHz) per superconducting 9-cell TESLA cavity at ELBE had been increased from 8.5 kW to 20 kW (CW) using solid state amplifiers. In a second step the performance of several machine components of ELBE must be redesigned to enable full power operation without risks. The poster gives an overview how these problems have been solved at ELBE and reports on the commissioning.
