The RAON accelerator of Rare Isotope Science Project(RISP)has been developed to accelerate heavy ion beams generated by superconducting electron cyclotron resonance ion source(ECR-IS). The beams produced by the ECR-IS are transported through Low Energy Beam Transport(LEBT)section to Radio Frequency Quadrupole(RFQ),Medium Energy Beam Transport(MEBT)section,andlow energy super-conducting linac(SCL1). Prior to the construction of the RAON accelerator, the components of the LEBT section, the RFQ,the MEBT section,and the part of the SCL1 need to put to the test with the beams generated by the ECR-IS. For that reason, a test facility is under development and will be installed within a few year. Also, in order to build the test facility more efficiently within its restrictive space requirements,we designed the lattice of the test facility newly and then,with this newly designed lattice, in order to demonstrate that the test facility performs well,the start-to-end beam simulation needs to be carried out.In this paper,we will describe the new lattice design of the test facility and the result of the start-to-end beam simulation for the test facility. In addition to the simulation for the single charge state beam, the transportation and acceleration of the three charge state beams will be also examined in the test facility.
