The National Synchrotron Light Source II (NSLS-II) is a state of the art 3 GeV third generation light source at Brookhaven National Laboratory. As in many other light sources, top-off injection is considered as a standard operation mode resulting in more stable beam intensity to minimize heat load variation on the beamline optics. Top off injection specifications include maintaining the stored beam current within 0.5% and the bunch to bunch charge variation within 20% bands. To make the top off commissioning smooth and efficient, a virtual machine model based on the measured beam properties was developed. The model helped to study robustness of this application operating under different conditions and optimize the input parameters. Once tested the model was transitioned to beam commissioning. To make the beam tests more efficient, the beam lifetime was controlled by adjusting RF voltage and scrapers. In this paper, we'll share the experience from the test stage to machine implementation of the top-off controls.
