The Helmholtz Zentrum Berlin is constructing the Energy Recovery Linac Prototype BERLinPro at the Berlin Adlershof site. The project is intended to expand the required accelerator physics and technology knowledge mandatory for the design, construction and operation of future synchrotron light sources. The project goal is the generation of a high current (100 mA), high brilliance (norm. emittance below 1 mm mrad) cw electron beam. We report on the project progress: since spring 2015 the building is under construction, ready for occupancy in January 2017. The planning phase for the first project stage is completed for the warm machine parts, the SRF gun and partly for the SRF booster. Most of the components have been ordered and are in fabrication with some already delivered. An update of the status of the various subprojects as well as a summary of future activities will be given. Project milestones and details of the timeline will be reviewed.

  OPAL (Object Oriented Parallel Accelerator Library) is an open source, C++ based tool for charged particle tracking in large accelerator structures and beam lines including 3D space charge, particle matter interaction and FFAG capabilities. The careful parallel design makes it possible to tackle large and complex problems, in a reasonable time frame. The current code status and latest program improvements and upgrades are introduced. One of the provided flavors, OPAL-T, was, so-far, used for relatively simple lattices and was not well suited for more complicated arrangements of elements. One of the major upgrades is the possibility to place elements in 3D space, giving the user a better control in absolute element positioning. The old input format with relative positioning is still supported. We show results of the BERLinPro lattice and compare it with results obtained with elegant.

THOBA03 Start-to-end Calculations and Trajectory Correction for BERLinPro 3167

BERLinPro is an ERL project under construction at the Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin, with the goal to illuminate the challenges and promises of a high brightness 100 mA superconducting RF gun in combination with a 50 MeV return loop and energy recovery. Latest changes to the optics code OPAL allow for the first time to perform start-to-end tracking studies including space charge in a single run, without switching between codes. This opens the way to apply correction schemes to displaced trajectories in the complete machine and to study the effect of jitter sources, including the space charge dominated injector, on the machine performance parameters. Trajectory correction is discussed. Jitter is studied with respect to its potential impact on the recovery process and parameter changes before the dump.
