During the design, commissioning and operation of a linac-driven Free Electron Laser (FEL) it is important to have a good understanding of the implications of accelerator design choices on beam figures of merit. This simulation engine combines a full state-space model of the RF system (High-Power Amplifier, RF cavities, LLRF controllers, etc.), a characterization of beam properties such as energy, bunch length and arrival time as electrons propagate through the Linac and beam-based feedback. The combination of these models with the ability to introduce both correlated and uncorrelated noise sources at any point of the machine, allows for a complete transposition of noise sources to beam performance parameters, including frequency dependence, in order to analyze implications of accelerator design choices in a simulation environment.
