  The transverse impedance of eight extraction pulse kicker magnets (KM) is extremely strong source of transverse beam instability in the 3-GeV RCS (Rapid Cycling Synchrotron) at J-PARC. To realize the designed 1 MW beam power, collective beam dynamics with including the space charge effect for the coupled bunch instabilities excited by the KM impedance and associated measures were studied by incorporating all realistic time-dependent machine parameters in the ORBIT 3-D particle tracking code. The simulation results were all reproduced by measurements and, as a consequence, an acceleration of 1 MW beam power has been successfully demonstrated. In order to maintain variation of the RCS parameters required for multi-user operation, realistic measures for beam instability mitigation were proposed and also been successfully implemented in reality. To further increase the RCS beam power, beam stability issues and possible measures beyond 1 MW beam power are also considered.

  J-PARC 3-GeV RCS (rapid cycling synchrotron) provides a high-power beam both to MLF (materials and life science experimental facility) and MR (main ring synchrotron) by switching the beam destination pulse by pulse. The beam properties required from MLF and MR are different; MLF needs a wide-emittance beam with less charge density, while MR requires a low-emittance beam with less beam halo. To meet the antithetic requirements while keeping beam loss at permissible levels, RCS has recently initiated pulse-by-pulse switching of operational parameters (betatron tune, chromaticity, painting emittance, etc.). This paper presents the recent efforts toward the performance upgrade of RCS while discussing the related beam dynamics issues.
