Abstract: Diamond Light Source presently operates for users with 300 mA beam current and initial tests have begun to upgrade this current towards an ultimate goal of 500 mA. The implications of such a beam current increase for the storage ring RF system will be significant, including the installation of a third superconducting cavity and a possible modification of the coupling parameters of the existing cavities. An overview of the planned enhancements of the RF system is presented, including an update of the procurement of a new CESR-design cavity and options for installation and operation of this cavity and supporting infrastructure.
