Details the operation of a feed-forward control system (FFCC) at the Accelerator Test Facility at Brookhaven National Laboratory in Brookhaven, New York. Use of the system to control the phase and amplitude of two high power klystron radio frequency systems; Schematic diagram of the FFCC; Linac amplitude trace before and after feed-forward control.
