|WEPP013||Beam Commissioning of Beam Position and Phase Monitors for LIPAc||527|

The LIPAc accelerator is 9-MeV, 125-mA CW deuteron accelerator that aims to validate the technology that will be used in the future IFMIF accelerator (40-MeV, 2 x 125-mA CW). LIPAc is presently under beam commissioning of the second acceleration stage (injector and Radio Frequency Quadrupole) at 5 MeV. In this stage two types of BPM’s are used: four stripline-type to control the transverse position and phase at the Medium Energy Beam Transport line (MEBT), and three other stripline-type mainly for the precise measurements of the mean beam energy at the Diagnostics Plate. All the BPM’s have been successfully tested and served to increase the duty cycle and the average power of the beam delivered down to the beam dump. Moreover, the BPM’s were key devices for the transverse beam positioning and longitudinal beam tuning and validation of the RFQ and re-buncher cavities at the MEBT. In this contribution, an overview of the beam position monitors system installation and characterization in the facility will be reported. First tests of the system with the upgraded acquisition electronics for the next phase will be also presented.
