To reach the required luminosity at the CLIC interaction point, about 2000 quadrupoles along each linear collider are needed to obtain a vertical beam size of 1 nm at the interaction point. Active mechanical stabilization is required to limit the vibrations of the magnetic axis to the nanometre level in a frequency range from 1 to 100 Hz. The approach of a stiff actuator support was chosen to isolate from ground motion and technical vibrations acting directly on the quadrupoles. The actuators can also reposition the quadrupoles between beam pulses with nanometre resolution. A first conceptual design of the active stabilization and nano positioning based on the stiff support and seismometers was validated in models and experimentally demonstrated on test benches. Lessons learnt from the test benches and information from integrated luminosity simulations using measured stabilization transfer functions lead to improvements of the actuating support, the sensors used and the system controller. The controller electronics were customized to improve performance and to reduce cost, size and power consumption. The outcome of this R&D is implemented in the design of the first prototype of a stabilized CLIC quadrupole magnet.

Within accelerator control systems fast and accurate beam dynamics simulation programs can advantageously assist the operators to get a more detailed insight into the actual machine status. The V-Code simulation tool implemented at TEMF is a fast tracking code based on the Vlasov equation. Instead of directly solving this partial differential equation the considered particle distribution function is represented by a discrete set of characteristic moments. The accuracy of this approach is adjustable with the help of the considered order of moments and by representing the particle distribution through multiple sets of moments in a multi-ensemble environment. In this contribution an overview of the numerical model is presented together with implemented features for its dedicated integration into the control system of the Superconducting Linear Accelerator S-DALINAC.

  The European XFEL project is a 4th generation light source. The first beam will be delivered in the beginning of 2015. At the project startup three light sources SASE 1, SASE 2 and SASE 3 will produce spatially coherent ≤80fs short photon pulses with a peak brilliance of 1032-1034 photons/s/mm2/mrad2/0.1% BW in the energy range from 0.26 to 24 keV at an electron beam energy 14 GeV. The Undulator systems are used to produce photon beams for SASE 1, SASE 2 and SASE 3. Each undulator system consists of an array of undulator cells installed in a row along the electron beam. The undulator cell itself consists of a planar undulator, a phase shifter, magnetic field correction coils and a quadrupole mover. The local control system of the undulator cell is based on industrial components produced by Beckhoff and on PLC software implemented in TwinCAT system. Four servo motors are installed on each undulator and control the gap between girders with micrometer accuracy. One stepper motor is used for phase shifter control, and two other stepper motors control the position of the quadrupole magnet. The current of magnetic field correction coils as well as the gap of the phase shifter are adjustable as a function of the undulator gap. The high level of synchronization (<<1μs) for the complete undulator system (for instance SASE2 with 35 undulator cells in total) could be achieved due to implementation of the EtherCAT fieldbus system in the local control. The description of the hardware components and the software functionality of the local control system will be discussed.

  The Taiwan Photon Source (TPS) is a latest generation synchrotron light source. Stringent power supply specifications should be met to achieve design goals of the TPS. High precision power supply equipped with 20, 18, and 16 bits DAC for the storage ring dipole, quadrupole, and sextupole are equipped with Ethernet interfaces. Control interface include basic functionality and some advanced features which are useful for performance monitoring and post-mortem diagnostics. Power supply of these categories can be accessed by EPICS IOCs. The corrector power supplies' control interface is a specially designed embedded interface module which will be mounted on the corrector power supply cages to achieve required performance. The setting reference of the corrector power supply is generated by 20 bits DAC and readback is done by 24 bits ADC. The interface module has embedded EPICS IOC for slow control. Fast setting ports are also supported by the internal FPGA for orbit feedback supports.
