Recent theoretical and experimental advances of the high gain self-amplified spontaneous emission free-electron laser (SASE-FEL), have demonstrated the feasibility of using this system as a 4th generation light source. This source will produce diffraction-limited radiation in the 0.1 nm region of the spectrum, with peak power of tens of GW, subpicosecond pulse length, and very large brightness. The peak power density in such a system is very large, and in some experiments it might damage the optical systems or the samples, or it might be simply larger than what is needed for the particular experiment being considered. Some options to reduce the power level, for example by using a gas absorption cell to reduce the X-ray intensity, have been studied. In this paper we discuss another possibility to control the power output of an X-ray SASE-FEL by varying the charge from the electron source, and the longitudinal bunch compression during the acceleration in the linac
