  Severe multi-bunch instabilities are bothered the operation of Taiwan Light Source (TLS) during the operation during 2004 just after SRF system upgrade. FPGA-based bunch-by-bunch feedback system was commissioning during late 2005 and early 2006. Multi-bunch instability in both transverse plans and longitudinal are well control. Delivery up to 400 mA stored beam was demonstrated. Transverse feedback system make low chromaticity operation is possible; this is very helpful to improve injection efficiency which are essential for routine top-up operation. Operation experiences of the bunch-by-bunch feedback system will be summary in this report.

  The preinjector of the Taiwan Light Source(TLS) is consist of a 140 kV themionic gun and a 50 MeV traveling wave type linear accelerator system. In order to improve performance, to decouple the vacuum interlock logic from the linac control system, and to provide a better control functionality for top-up operation and to avoid obsolescence, linac control system have been renew. One VME crate system is dedicated for linac control, new hardware equips with high resolution of analog interface to provide better control. Vacuum interlock logic will be done be a dedicated programmable logic controller(PLC). The remained linac devices have sequential control needed will be done by another PLC, such as door access interlock, klystron warm up, gun warm up, trig interlock, gun high voltage interlock, klystron modulator high voltage interlock, water flow interlock. Both interlock and sequence control PLC will control by the VME crate. All the other functions without interlock or sequence requirement will control by the VME crate directly. New control system expects to provide better control functionality, better performance, easy for maintenance, and useful easy to add new hardware equipments.

  Taiwan light source started the 200 mA top-up operation in October 2005, and the stored beam current was subsequently ramped up to 300 mA top-up operation. In the early phase of top-up operation, the injection efficiency had large variation at different machine condition. We have developed the procedures to maintain the injection efficiency. These optimization procedures will be activated whenever the injection efficiency degrades during the top-up operation of TLS.

  A single cell rf-gun cavity is designed and fabricated for the purpose of examining the feasibility of installing a thermionic rf-gun at NSRRC instead of a photocathode rf-gun considered previously. The operating frequency of the rf-gun cavity is set at 2856 MHz in order to utilize the available XK-5 klystron and linac. The fabricated parts of the OFHC copper cavity are brazed together in-house and then the cavity is characterized by rf measurement. It shows that the cavity gives very good character in terms of high quality factor, relaxed tuning range, adequate coupling coefficient, and reasonable reproducibility. The properties of the cavity are further explored by measuring the field profile and its response to an rf pulse in which the filling time is deduced. The measurement results of this brazed cavity are described and summarized in this report.

  The storage ring of Taiwan Light Source started to operate fully in top-up mode since October 2005. The beam current has been gradually increased to 300 mA in routine user operation. Phenomena of collective effects were observed at 300 mA in top-up operation mode. Active feedback systems were implemented to stabilize the beam in top-up mode. Results of beam observation and analysis will be presented.

  Taiwan light source (TLS) equips with 59 beam position monitors (BPM). Existing Bergos's type multiplexing BPM electronics are working well during last decade. To improve the functionality of the BPM system, new type of BPM electronics (Liberal Electron) will be replace some existing multiplexing BPM electronics. Seamless integration of two kinds of electronics is via reflective memory. The high precision closed orbits were measured by multiplexing BPM via multi-channel PMC form factor 16-bits ADC modules and gigabit Ethernet fast access channel of Libera Electron. Turn-by-turn beam position measurement is also supported by new BPM electronics. Tune measurement is also possible by spectra analysis of the turn-by-turn beam position data. The preliminary version of the orbit data was sampled every millisecond. Fast orbit data were shared by reflective memory network to support fast orbit feedback application. Averaged data were updated to control database at a rate of 10 Hz. The system structure, software environment and preliminary beam test of the BPM system are summarized in this report.
