Analytical study of superconducting RF cavity detuning compensation

20 Sep 2019  ·  Wang Faya, Adolphsen Chris ·

The cavities in superconducting linacs tend to operate with narrow bandwidths that are comparable to microphonic induced detuning from external forces. Proportional-Integral (PI) feedback loops are used to stabilize the cavity voltage in response to the varying cavity resonant frequency... Without feedback, the cavity voltage variation with detuning is non-linear, but in this paper we show that in the regime where the detuning amplitude is smaller than the frequency of the detuning, which is typically the case, the response can be linearized so as to provide simple analytical characterizations of PI loop performance as a function of the various parameters involved (integral and proportional gains, noise and low pass filter bandwidth). read more
