  Elettra is the Italian third generation light source in operation in Trieste since 1993. The project of upgrade of the Elettra RF system has become necessary to provide the needed operating margins when all the insertion devices are operational and in view of possible increases in beam current and energy. The first phase of the project regards one of the four plants, which has been upgraded from 60 to 150 kW cw. The power amplifier has been built combining two 80 kW IOTs (inductive output tubes) by means of a switchless combiner. The amplifier and the power plant components have been installed in the second half of year 2006. A coaxial to waveguide transition has been specially designed to interface the coaxial coupler of the cavity to the waveguide power transmission system, taking into account the risks connected to power from the higher order modes excited by the beam in the cavity. After giving an overview of the project, this paper discusses the technical choices adopted, the tests performed during the installation phase and the commissioning of the new system with beam during machine operation.

  The Elettra new full energy injector will be based on a 100 MeV linac and a 2.5 GeV booster synchrotron and it will replace the existing 1.2 linac injector. This paper presents the design, construction and the test results of the RF system for the booster synchrotron. The analysis of the foreseen operating scenario is also described. The system must be as simple and reliable as possible, taking into consideration the high availability required for the possible top-up mode of operation. It has also to be consistent with the other upgrades of the facility, as the upgrade of the storage ring RF system. The booster RF system will use a 500 MHz 5-cell copper cavity powered by a 60 kW klystron based power plant. The low level electronics has been in-house developed, starting from the system in operation in the storage ring, increasing the performances and developing the new features required by the use of a five-cell cavity, instead of a single cell one, and by the ramped operation. The commissioning of the new injector is scheduled to start in summer 2007, while the first Elettra operation for users with the new full energy injector is expected for the first quarter of 2008.
