Abstract Electron clouds impose limitations on current accelerators that may be more severe for future machines, unless adequate measures of mitigation are taken. Recently, it has been proposed to use feedback systems operating at high frequency (in the GHz range) to damp single-bunch transverse coherent oscillations that may otherwise be amplified during the interaction of the beam with ambient electron clouds. We have used the simulation package WARP-POSINST to study the growth rate and frequency patterns in space-time of the electron cloud driven transverse instability in the CERN SPS accelerator with, or without, an idealized feedback model for damping the instability. We will present our latest simulation results, contrast them with actual measurements and discuss the implications for the design of the actual feedback system.
