It has been recently shown that fast oscillating control fields can be used to speed up an otherwise slow adiabatic process, making the system always follow an instantaneous eigenvector closely. In applying this method though, one typically assumes perfect phase relations among the control fields. In this work, we discuss the effect of potential static phase errors. We show that the latter can in some cases produce higher fidelities, leading to an unexpected improvement of the method. This is shown numerically and explained via a perturbative expansion of the error produced by the control strategy. When high-precision phase control is accessible, the results suggest that the phases of the control field can be used as free parameters whose optimization can be beneficial for the control protocol.
