Project-X is the proposed high intensity proton facility to be built at Fermilab. This facility is based on an H- superconducting linac which will be operated in continuous wave (CW) mode to accelerate the beam from 2.5 MeV to 3 GeV. The low energy section (2.5-160 MeV) uses three families of SC single spoke resonators i.e., SSR0, SSR1 & SSR2 which are operated at 325 MHz, and the high energy section (160 MeV-3.0 GeV) uses two families of 5-cell SC elliptical shape cavities which are designed for particles traveling at 61% and 90% of the speed of light. These are operated at 650 MHz. The operation in CW mode puts stringent tolerances on the beam line components, particularly in the low energy section. This presentation addresses operation requirements and design considerations for the CW linac and contains preliminary results of RF and beam optics optimization.
