The warm front end of the PIP2IT accelerator, assembled and commissioned at Fermilab, consists of a 15 mA DC, 30 keV H ion source, a 2-m long Low Energy Beam Transport (LEBT) line, a 2.1-MeV, 162.5 MHz CW RFQ, followed by a 10-m long Medium Energy Beam Transport (MEBT) line. A part of the commissioning efforts involves operation in regimes where the average beam power in this front end emulates the operation of the proposed PIP-II accelerator, which will have a duty factor of 1.1% or above. The maximum achieved power is 5 kW (2.1 MeV x 5 mA x 25 ms x 20 Hz). This paper describes the difficulties encountered and some of the solutions that were implemented.
