The SIS18 synchrotron of GSI will be used as a booster ring for the SIS100 synchrotron built in the scope of the FAIR project. In order to preserve the beam quality during the whole acceleration ramp, a new closed orbit feedback (COFB) system is implemented at the SIS18 which operates with the existing BPMs and steerer magnets. The system aims for a bandwidth of several 100 Hz and robustness against the variation of the response matrix and the beam rigidity during the ramp. The architecture of the system and the results of the first beam-based test of the COFB hardware are presented. As a first step, the orbit correction is performed over the entire ramp using the response matrix corresponding to injection energy only taking the beam rigidity into account. Experimental observations of the bandwidth limitations arising from the temporal delay of the steerer power supplies and the spatial model variation during the ramp are compared with simulations. It is found that the temporal and the spatial model mismatch have similar effect on the achievable bandwidth of the COFB.
