Taiwan Photon Source (TPS) is a low-emittance 3 GeV synchrotron light source designed to provide X-ray brightness 4~5 orders of magnitude than the existing Taiwan Light Source (TLS). The phase-I beam commissioning started in December 2014 and the electron beam was stored up to 5 mA in the storage ring on 31 Dec., 2014. The phase-II commissioning began in September 2015 after the installation of 2 superconducting RF cavities and 10 insertion devices. The commissioning process will be reported and results be presented.
