The stripping extraction from the INFN-LNS Superconducting Cyclotron will allow increasing the extracted beam power from the present 100 Watt to more than 5 kWatt for ions with A $< 40$. The existing electrostatic deflectors will be maintained to extract all the ions allowed by the cyclotron operating diagram. Since the beam features at extraction are strongly dependent on the beam dynamics in the central region, the optimization of the beam injection and first turns acceleration is mandatory. The results of simulations of the beam particles through the spiral inflector and the central region will be presented.
