This paper shows the successful application of an iterative learning controller (ILC) to the free electron laser FLASH at DESY, Hamburg, a plant of large international interest for research in physics, chemistry, biology, and engineering. First experimental results demonstrate the applicability of the ILC approach to the low level radio frequency system which controls the electron acceleration.
