The high-energy electron cooling system for RHIC-II is unique compared to standard coolers. It requires bunched electron beam. Electron bunches are produced by an Energy Recovery Linac (ERL), and cooling is planned without longitudinal magnetic field [1]. To address unique features of the RHIC cooler, a generalized treatment of cooling force was introduced in BETACOOL code [2] which allows us to calculate friction force for an arbitrary distribution of electrons. Simulations for RHIC cooler
