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.

Top Off operation is the desired mode of operation for 3rd generation light sources to ensure beam current stability for user experiments. However, top off operation introduces the hazard of injecting electrons into the front ends with the beamline shutters open. This hazard can be mitigated with the appropriate safety system. This past year, the NSLS-II has transitioned from decay mode to top off operation with the introduction of the Top Off Safety System (TOSS). Top Off was initially demonstrated September 22, 2015 and become standard mode of operating. In this paper we discuss the top off safety system, operation with the system, and future directions.

  The NSLS-II at Brookhaven National Laboratory (BNL) started the user beam service in early 2015, and is currently operating 13 of the insertion device (ID) and beamlines as well as constructing new beamlines. The fast machine protection consists of an active interlock system (AIS), beam position monitor (BPM), cell controller (CCs) and front-end (FE) systems. The AIS measures the electron beam envelop and the dumps the beam by turning off RF system, and then the diagnostic system provides the post-mortem data for an analysis of which system caused the beam dump and the machine status analysis. NSLS-II post-mortem system involves AIS, CCs, BPMs, radio frequency system (RFs), power supply systems (PSs) as well as the timing system. This paper describes the AIS architecture and PM performance for NSLS-II safe operations.
