I am puzzeled by the way OPAL handles the phasing of cavities. I have a linear lattice setup with arrays of independent single gap pillbox cavities. My cavity is defined like this:
RFG1: RFCavity, L=0.024, VOLT=6.4, TYPE="SINGLEGAP", FMAPFN="OPALEzTab1", FREQ=816.0, LAG=(-25.0*Pi)/180.0, APVETO=False;
If I set autophasing on (1 in this case) I get the following Ez-field on the axis and final kinectic energy:
However if I set APVETO to True like that:
RFG1: RFCavity, L=0.024, VOLT=6.4, TYPE="SINGLEGAP", FMAPFN="OPALEzTab1", FREQ=816.0, LAG=(-25.0*Pi)/180.0, APVETO=True;
I get instead (what I don't understand):
The first case seems to me to be correct from what I expect from the physics. Equal increments in energy and always positive field in the cavities.
But I gave a LAG=-25.0 degrees as synchronous phase and expected something similar in the second case.
How can this be explained and how can I see what phases autophasing is producing and why does it not work with autophasing off?
