    We have studied the dynamics of giant pulse generation in the Duke UV FEL with peak power of several gigawatts. The giant pulses will be provided by a FEL gain modulation technique developed for the OK-4 UV FEL at Novosibirsk, Russia. A new mechanism for "super-pulse" generation was discovered during these studies. It allows the generation of peak power up to 10 GW using the "phase space" refreshment of the electron beam caused by synchrotron motion [V. Litvinenko et al., to be published]. We have developed a new macro-particle code for giant pulse simulation including all known mechanisms of storage ring FEL interaction. Results of these giant pulse simulations are presented in the paper. © 1995.
