Implementation of a Fast Orbit Feedback System at the ALS
E.C.Williams* (LBNL)
A fast global orbit feedback system has been in user operation at the ALS for over 5 years. This system was constructed using custom control software running in the EPICS environment, and off-the-shelf computer and Ethernet network hardware to provide improved beam stability. An overview of the feedback system design and implementation will be presented, as well as unique issues encountered during commissioning and proposals for future improvements.
