The Multi-Bunch Mode (MBM) beam injection opera-tion of NSLS-II LINAC requires a beam-loading compen-sation for its rf field. That requirement has a significant impact on its radio frequency system (RF), in both the low-level rf control and the high-power klystron transmit-ters. Specifically, for the rf control, it requires the output vector modulation have enough bandwidth to be able to respond the transients by the MBM beam of 40~300 nS long. For the high-power rf transmitters, it requires the klystrons to operate in a near-linear region to be able to respond the linear rf control for the beam-loading compensation, which means a need of ~30% extra rf power overhead, compared to the single-bunch mode operations. The digital signal processing and the network configuration for the rf controllers are also the important areas in the implementation. The original system design was driven by the MBM beam operation requirements, and our system upgrade today continues to be guided by the same principles.
