For acceleration of high intensity proton beams in the J-PARC MR, beam loading compensation is important. In the MA-loaded RF cavity in the MR, which has a $$Q$$-value in the order of 20, the wake voltage consists of the accelerating harmonic ($$h$$ = 9) and the neighbor harmonics ($$h$$ = 8, 10). We employ the RF feedforward method for the beam loading compensation, like in the J-PARC RCS, in which the impedance seen by the beam is greatly reduced by the feedforward. The full-digital feedforward system developed for the MR has a similar architecture to that of the RCS. The system compensates the beam loading of the important three harmonics ($$h$$ = 8, 9, 10). We present the structure of the RF feedforward system. Also, we report the preliminary results of the beam tests.
