Short description

PLACET (Program for Linear Accelerator Correction and Efficiency Tests) is a code that simulates the dynamics of a beam in the main accelerating or decelerating part of a linac in the presence of wakefields. It allows to investigate single- and multi-bunch effects, and to simulate normal cavities with relatively low group velocities as well as the special power extraction and transfer structures specific to CLIC. A number of correction schemes are implemented, to test what emittance growth must be expected for given prealignment errors.
