We present ORBIT code simulations to examine the sensitivity of electron cloud properties to different proton beam profiles and to reproduce experimental results measured at the proton storage ring (PSR) at the Los Alamos National Laboratory. Using cold proton bunch model, we study the dependence of the prompt and swept electron intensities vs the bunch charge and the recovery of electron clouds after sweeping on the beam loss rate and the secondary electron yield (SEY). Our simulations indicate that the fractional proton loss rate in the field-free straight section may be an exponential function of proton beam charge and may also be lower than the averaged fractional proton loss rate in a whole ring.
