  To steer the closed orbit in a storage ring through the center of its quadrupoles, it is important to accurately know the quadrupole centers relative to nearby beam position monitors. Usually this is achieved by beam-based alignment (BBA). Assuming the quadrupole strength can be changed individually, one finds the BPM reading where changing a quadrupole’s strength does not alter the closed orbit. Since most quadrupoles are powered in series, they can only be varied independently if costly power supplies are added. For the EIC electron storage ring (ESR), we investigate whether sextupole BBA can be used instead. Individually powered sextupole BBA techniques already exist, but most sextupoles are powered in families and cannot be individually changed. We therefore developed a method where a localized bump changes the beam excursion in a single sextupole of a family, turning off all families that also have sextupoles in the bump. The bump amplitude at which the sextupole does not cause a closed orbit kick determines the sextupole’s alignment. This study was made to investigate the precision to which this method can be utilized.
