The linac is capable of operating in single (SBM) and multi-bunch injection mode (MBM). Since 2016 the Single Bunch Bucket Selection algorithm which runs in SBM, permits to inject on a selected bucket keeping the charge uniformity along the ring below 4\%. However when running in SBM a significantly lower transmission along the linac is observed, with respect to the one when running in MBM. Simulation efforts have been deployed in order to build up a reliable model of the ALBA linac which can reproduce the experimental measurements. In this paper we present the new simulation model that renders the experimental observations, and the new optimization procedure developed in simulations and tested in the real machine.
