Abstract: Virtual accelerators are used for testing control system software against realistic accelerator simulations. Previous virtual accelerators for synchrotron light sources have used Tracy and Elegant as the simulator, but without Python bind- ings for accelerator simulations it has been difficult to create a virtual accelerator using Python. With the development of Python Accelerator Toolbox (pyAT), that is now possi- ble. This paper describes the combination of pyAT, Python Toolkit for Accelerator Controls (Pytac) and pythonSoftIoc to create an EPICS-based virtual accelerator for Diamond Light Source.
