Collective effects in high intensity, high energy particle accelerators and colliders are becoming increasingly important as performance is continuously pushed to the limits. The mitigation of collective effects, in particular coherent beam instabilities, relies heavily on transverse feedback systems. The dimensioning of these feedback systems (i.e. power, bandwidth, pickup and kicker distribution) are key to the systems performance and its effectiveness in combating collective effect limitations. Consequently, their realistic modeling in computer simulation codes is also highly important. In this paper we will briefly outline recent developments in advanced modeling of transverse feedback systems in collective eects using the example of macroparticle simulation codes developed at CERN.
