  For high intensity CW beam, beam loading effect is a major issue for the stability operation of the linac. The steady state and transient perturbations of the accelerating voltage by the beam current causes significant differences between the design lattice to the actual operated parameters for the SC cavities. The errors accumulated along the linac, lead to undesirable beam behaviour, and cause beam losses finally. In this paper the beam loading effects of the SC cavities for Injector-I have been analyzed for 10 mA proton beam and presented.

  For high intensity linacs, beam particle distributions are in most cases far from Gaussian ones. Furthermore, the distribution shapes drastically differ from a linac to another and significantly change along a given linac. For those reasons, classical RMS parameters like beam envelope or emittance are no longer enough for characterizing the beam as soon as comparison or evolution of beam quality is in view. This paper presents three alternative ways to characterize more suitably a high intensity beam: 6D coordinates of the actual number of particles, projections of the distribution onto a few axes, RMS parameters of the core and of the halo separately. The advantages and drawbacks of each method are then discussed in terms of beam representativeness, data weight and physics insight.
