User operation current has been gradually increased to 250mA. Observations of beam stabilities during top-off operations will be presented. Total beam current was typically maintained within ±0.5% and bunch to bunch current variation was less than 20%. Injection transition during top-off was measured bunch by bunch digitizer, and BPM to analyze the orbit motion at various bandwidths (turn by turn, 10kHz and 10Hz rate). Coupled bunch unstable motions were monitored. As the vacuum pressure improves, fast-ion instability is not as severe compared to early stage of commissioning/operation, but still observed as the dominant instability. Resistive wall instability is noticed as more in-vacuum-undulator (IVU) gaps closed. xBPM measured photon stability and electron beam stability at top off injection have been evaluated. Short term and long term orbit stabilities will be reported.
