The Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC) at Brookhaven National Laboratory will undergo a beam energy scan over the next several years. To execute this scan, the transfer line between the Alternating Gradient Synchrotron (AGS) and RHIC or the so-called the ATR line, must be re-tuned for each energy. Control of the ATR line has four primary constraints: match the beam trajectory into RHIC, match the transverse focusing, match the dispersion, and minimize losses. Some of these can be handled independently, for example orbit matching. However, offsets in the beam can affect the transverse beam optics, thereby coupling the dynamics. Furthermore, the introduction of vertical optics increases the possibilities for coupling between transverse planes, and the desire to make the line spin transparent further complicates matters. During this talk, we will explore three promising avenues for controlling the ATR line, model predictive control (MPC), on-line optimization methods, and hybrid MPC and optimization methods. We will provide an overview of each method, discuss the tradeoffs between these methods, and summarize our conclusions.
