Beam loading compensation is a key for acceleration of a high intensity proton beam in the MR of J-PARC. Magnetic alloy loaded rf cavities with a Q value of 22 are used to achieve high accelerating voltages. The cavity is driven by a single harmonic (h = 9) rf signal while the cavity frequency response also covers the neighbor harmonics (h = 8, 10). Therefore the wake voltage induced by the high intensity beam consists of the three harmonics, h = 8, 9, 10. We employ the rf feedforward method to compensate the beam loading ofthese three harmonics (h = 8, 9, 10). The full-digital multiharmonic feedforward system was developed for the MR. The commissioning of the feedforward system has been performed by using high intensity beams with 1.0$$times$$10$$^{14}$$ protons per pulse. The longitudinal oscillations due to the beam loading are reduced. By the beam loading compensation, stable high power beam operation is achieved.
