The results of using two (SPECTRA and SRW) programs for simulating synchrotron radiation (SR) are presented. Calculations are performed for coherent SR from a beam of electrons with moderately relativistic energies in a short bending magnet. Simulation is carried out for real beam parameters. A comparison between simulation and experimental data indicates their good agreement. Both general information for the given codes grouped by a number of criteria and specific data on simulating radiation from bending magnets are presented.
