  Throughout 2015, many measurements of the minimum stabilizing octupole current required to prevent coherent transverse instabilities have been performed. These measurements allow the LHC impedance model at flat top to be verified and give good indicators of future performance and limitations. The results are summarized here, and compared to predictions from the simulation code DELPHI.

  During the Run I in 2012, several instabilities have been observed at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) during the Betatron squeeze. The predictions of instability thresholds are based on the computation of the beam Landau damping by calculating the Stability Diagrams (SD). These instabilities could be explained by a deterioration of the SD due to beam-beam resonance excitation which could change the particle distributions. Beam Transfer Functions (BTF) provide a measurement of the Stability Diagram. The BTFs are sensitive to the particle detuning with amplitude as well as to the particle distributions therefore they represent a powerful tool to understand experimentally the stability of beams during the LHC operational cycle. First BTF measurements at the LHC are presented for different machine configurations and settings and compared to predictions.
