  At the Argonne Wakefield Accelerator (AWA) facility, particle-tracking simulations have been critical to guiding beam-dynamic experiments, e.g., for various beam manipulations using an available emittance-exchange beamline (EEX). The unique beamline available at AWA provide a test case to perform in-depth comparison between different particle-tracking programs including collective effects such as space-charge force and coherent synchrotron radiation. In this study, using AWA electron injector and emittance exchange beamline, we compare the simulations results obtained by GPT, OPAL, and Impact-T beam-dynamics programs. We will specifically report on convergence test as a function of parameters that controls the underlying algorithms.
