The interaction between laser pulse and electron beam of a storage ring free electron laser (SRFEL) can be described in the longitudinal phase space as a function of the longitudinal detuning, which we define as the delay per pass between the laser pulse and the electron bunch. SRFEL dynamics versus detuning is studied by comparison of measurements performed at Super ACO with a numerical code. Experimental phenomena regarding detuning have been properly predicted by simulations. Quantitative agreement for pulse duration, pulse repetition frequency, laser power, etc. has been found.
