lattice file conversion from MAD-X to ELEGANT?

Post by gpark » 23 Jun 2021, 16:14

I am in a collaboration with other team and they can provide me with a lattice file in MAD-X. I want to run it on the ELEGANT. The lattice is long and I would need some kind of conversion of the lattice file into something I can use for the ELEGANT. Is this possible? If so, could you let me know how to do it?

Thanks,
Gunn Tae

Gunn Tae,

I'm sure it is possible, but we don't have anything like that at APS. If you can provide the lattice, perhaps I can see what we can do.

I think SLAC had a program to convert MAD8 to elegant format.

Thanks, Michael

I failed to attach the files. It says extension .madx nor .dat are not allowed.

Gunn Tae,

I don't see the files. Did you forget to attach them?

Gunn Tae,

If you can put the file into a ZIP file, you should be able to attach that file with no problem.

Gunn Tae,

I convert MAD-X sequences into ELEGANT by using mad8 key in save command of MAD-X

Code: Select all

seqedit, sequence=ct_ring;
	flatten;
endedit;

set,format="28.15g";
select,flag=save,clear;
use,sequence=ct_ring;
save,sequence=ct_ring,file="ctau_tmp.madx",noexpr;

call,file="ctau_tmp.madx";	//Needed to have all expressions evaluated and replaced by numbers
twiss,ct_ring;				//Just to check

set,format="28.15g";
select,flag=save,clear;
use,sequence=ct_ring;
save,sequence=ct_ring,file="ctau-2022.02.04-08.56.14_1.0crab_L2.INJ.mad8",noexpr,mad8;

then I use MAD8 to obtain a beam line

Code: Select all

SAVELINE,NAME=ct_ring,FILENAME=&
"ctau-2022.02.04-08.56.14_1.0crab_L2.INJ-line.mad8";
After that you need to add watch or malign element and change RFCAVITY elements to RFCA.
