  FLUTE is a planned THz source at KIT operating at a beam energy of 40 to 50 MeV in a wide bunch charge range. It consists of a laser driven rf-gun, a linac and a magnetic bunch compressor. The high current density combined with relatively low energy of FLUTE leads to complex strong self-field and beam-radiation field interactions, which are the limiting factors for the bunch compression efficiency. The results of numerical studies are presented in this paper.
