The Australian Synchrotron storage ring must maintain a stable electron beam for user operations. The impedance characteristics of the storage ring can give rise to instabilities that adversely affect the beam quality and need to be well understood. Collective effects driven by the resistive wall impedance are particularly relevant at the Australian synchrotron and their strengths are enhanced by small gap insertion devices, such as IVUs. This study will explore the impedance issues identified in the Australian Synchrotron storage ring and current mitigation techniques.
