Description

Chinese ADS project started in 2011. It has taken around 6 years in the first stage. There are great progress have been achieved on the key technologies on accelerator, target and sub-critical reactor and will be introduced. The CW, ~4 mA, ~5 MeV proton beam has been domostrated stably in the last year. The demo linac with 25 MeV based on HWR and Spoke cavities is constructing and will commission by the end of year. A new conception of granular target has been proposed to sustain the beam power as high as 6 MW. The small-scale tests have been done and a large-scale loop bench is constructing to demonstrate the feasibility. The property of pellets is improving by material methods. A LBE loop has been developed and some long-term material experiments have been done. The second stage project, CIADS, was approved last year. It consists a superconducting proton linac with beam current of 10 mA and energy of 600 MeV, a granular target with tungsten pellets, and a LBE sub-critical reactor. The total thermal power of reactor and beam is 10 MW. It is a demonstration of high power coupling and transmutation. Base on the investigations in the fist stage, a new concept of ADANES (Accelerator Driven Advanced Nuclear Energy System) was put forward. It will be introduced too as the future plan.
