The machine puts very tight tolerance on the straightness of the electron beam orbit. It is hard to achieve the required trajectory due to the off-axis field of the misaligned quadrupoles and undulator segments especially for the SXFEL driven by low energy linac (840MeV). This tight requirement on electron beam straightness can only be met through the beam-based alignment (BBA) technology which achieved great success at LCLS, PAL-XFEL, European-XFEL and SCALA with high electron beam energies. But there has been no report about satisfactory BBA experiment results on soft X-ray FEL facility driven by relatively low energy linacs (on the order of 2 GeV or less) up to now. Here, we report the simulation results and preparatory experiment progress of the BBA at SXFEL with the method of dispersion-free steering (DFS). The experiment results show some improvements of the electron beam orbit and the phenomenon of the dispersion-free. The entire BBA experiment and a feedback system of electron beam trajectory may also be included.
