Automatic frequency matching for cavity warming-up in J-PARC linac digital LLRF control

Kobayashi, Tetsuya; Anami, Shozo*; Michizono, Shinichiro*; Fang, Z.*; Suzuki, Hiroyuki; Yamaguchi, Seiya*

In the J-PARC Linac LLRF, for the cavity start-up, the cavity resonance is automatically controlled to be the accelerating frequency (324 MHz and 972 MHz) with a mechanical tuner installed on the cavity. Figure 1: FPGA block diagram of the digital FB and FF control system for the J-PARC linac LLRF. We are planning to introduce a new method of the cavity-input frequency matching into the digital LLRF control system instead of the tuner control for the cavity start-up. In order to match the frequency with the detuned cavity, the output RF frequency is modulated by way of phase rotation with the I/Q modulator, while the cavity tuner is fixed. The detuning of the cavity is obtained from phase gradient of the cavity field decay at the RF-pulse end and the phase rotation is automatically controlled by a FPGA and a DSP. No hardware modification is necessary for this frequency modulation method.
