The Soreq Applied Research Accelerator Facility (SARAF) beam dynamics simulations are compared to the first beam measurements taken during commissioning. Beam transmission, ion energy and bunch width as functions of the RFQ power have been measured. The simulations and measurements show similar trends. The simulation covers the beam tail as well and is used to find the optimal operating voltage by minimizing the low energy tail and beam loss downstream the accelerator.
