The commissioning of the high power deuterium accelerator of Linear IFMIF Prototype Accelerator, LIPAc, is presently under progress. During the so-called Phase B, the accelerator is operating with a high current pulsed proton and deuteron. The Phase B operation has the goals of fulfilling an exhaustive characterization of equipment and machine parameters in pulsed beam operation up to 5 MeV and 125 mA at Low Duty Cycle. The LIPAc beam diagnostics are aimed to demonstrate at this first stage of the commissioning the correct performance of the accelerator and are used for a complete characterization of the accelerator matching and tuning parameters. The characterization and calibration of beam diagnostics developed are providing relevant feedback of the accelerator operation. Measurements of the centroid position, beam profile, energy, intensity or emittance have been acquired and analyzed. The experimental results gathered have been compared with beam dynamics simulations. In this contribution, an overview of the main results provided by the beam diagnostics during Phase B operation in proton will be shown, together with the status of each instrument.
