Description: Transition-free lattices are favored as possible realization of proton drivers. Several variants have been proposed, some of which have considerably different behavior. One of the main quantities used to characterize this behavior is the short term dynamic aperture (DA). In this note we study three different variants of such lattices, and show that the differences in DA among the lattices essentially disappear as soon as magnet multipole errors are included in the simulation. The tracking results can be understood in terms of the normal form based amplitude dependent tune shift and resonance strength coefficients.
