Multi-pass, multi-bunch beam-breakup (BBU) can limit the current in linac-based recirculating accelerators. We have made the computation of the transverse and longitudinal BBU-threshold current available in BMAD,Cornell's main accelerator simulation library. The coupling of horizontal and vertical motion as well as time of flight effects are automatically contained. Subsequently we present a detailed simulation study of transverse and longitudinal BBU in the proposed 5GeV Energy Recovery Linac… CONTINUE READING
