Measurement of the storage ring’s beam position is provided by 98 beam position monitors, and corrections can be applied using 42 horizontal and 56 vertical slow corrector magnets, and 42 horizontal and 42 vertical fast corrector magnets. This paper provides a background describing the feedback strategies adopted at the AS leading to the current integrated orbit feedback system, together with a description of the beam position analyse techniques currently in use. It will also highlight some of the issues encountered with the system and how they were overcome. The paper also describes planned improvements, including the enhanced orbit diagnostics functionality we are intending to introduce in the next 12 months.
