In order to enhance the sensitivity of the detector system of the CBELSA/TAPS experiment to charged particles, a Time Projection Chamber (TPC) is foreseen as a new tracking detector, which provides track and vertex reconstruction for charged particles. The amplificational stage of the TPC operates with Gas Electron Multipliers (GEMs). Detailed ANSYS and Garfield++ simulations were carried out and compared to measurements to find the optimum operation point of a complex multi-GEM amplification system.
