Inconsistence in particleID generated with bunched_beam using Elegant and Pelegant

Post by duanz » 02 Feb 2020, 23:17

Hi Michael,

As shown in the attached example, I attempted to use the first_is_fiducial mode in run_control and bunched_beam, to generate a first beam with a single particle for fiducialization and then track the second beam with the desired beam distribution. If I execute Elegant, the particleIDs of the second beam starts from 2. In contrast, if I execute Pelegant, the particleIDs of the second beam starts from 1. This could lead to some inconsistence if one wants to alter the DT of MALIGN among a range of particleIDs, say, only for the second beam.

Best,

Zhe

Zhe,

Thanks for reporting the bug. The fix will appear in the next release.

If you build from source, you can use the attached file.
