  Following the recurrent beam induced RF issues that perturbed LHC operation during LHC Run 1, a series of actions were put in place to minimize the risk that similar issues would occur in LHC Run 2: longitudinal impedance reduction campaign and/or improvement of cooling for equipment that were problematic or at the limit during Run 1, stringent constraints enforced on new equipment that would be installed in the machine, tests to control the bunch length and longitudinal distribution, additional monitoring of temperature, new monitoring tools and warning chains. This contribution reports the outcome of these actions, both successes as well as shortcomings, and details the lessons learnt for the future runs.

WEPMW008 Possible Beam Parameters in Double RF Operation of the CERN LHC 2430

  The LHC operates using a 400 MHz SC RF system. A 200 MHz NC RF system was foreseen in the LHC Design Report to improve beam capture and the bare resonators were manufactured, but never installed. Later the second harmonic RF system was proposed to cure longitudinal beam instabilities in the absence of a dedicated wideband feedback system in the LHC. For nominal intensities the longitudinal beam stability is ensured by controlled emittance blow-up during the acceleration ramp. Recently slow growing instabilities were observed at the end of long fills at 6.5 TeV as bunches shrink due to synchrotron radiation damping. For High Luminosity LHC twice higher intensities should be kept stable with new equipment installed in the ring. Additional motivations for a second RF system in the LHC have also been considered. Operation with an extra RF system is limited by the required RF configuration (phase between the two RF systems) and longitudinal beam stability. In this work requirements for the double RF systems are analyzed together with a possible range of longitudinal beam parameters.

WEPOY045 Benchmarking the Beam Longitudinal Dynamics Code BLonD 3094

  The relatively recent Beam Longitudinal Dynamics code BLonD has already been applied to a wide range of studies for all present CERN synchrotrons. Its application area ranges from studies of RF manipulations, over single and multi-bunch interactions with impedance, to the action of feedback loops and RF noise. In this paper, we present benchmarks and comparisons with measurements, theory, or other codes, which have increased greatly the trust in the code. Tests related to bunch-to-bucket transfer, feedback loops, diffusion due to noise injection, as well as collective effects, are presented.
