AB - Solenoids are often used as lens-like beam focusing elements in electron linacs, especially in the low energy beam lines aside the Gun solenoid for emittance compensation, a common element of high brightness photo-injectors. There are also many electron linacs worldwide which use the Velocity Bunching beam compression technique, which needs solenoids wrapping the first acceleration cavity. A misalignment between the beam trajectory and the magnetic center of the solenoids produces a decrease in the beam quality and makes it necessary to find a complex steering setting to force the beam on a good orbit. In this proceeding we present a study of two beam based alignment techniques, which are correlated: the first shows a method to find the correct electromagnetic axis of an acceleration cavity, the second shows how to align the solenoids (wrapping the cavity) on this axis. Therefore the study permits to find the best steering setting and the solenoids positions corrections which have to be done. The work is based on real data acquired on the SPARC linac and on a virtual experiment.
