Work Package 03: Definition of the Accelerator Driven System (ADS)

This work package defines the ADS system to be used in the analysis. As a starting point, it is logical to use the EFIT design done in FP6 IP-EUROTRANS. Also for this system, the necessary safety parameters have to be identified, evaluated and a set of limiting values have to be fixed. The flexibility towards the minor actinide loading provided by the subcriticality of the system will have to be applied to optimize the core within the safety limits. Again, these limiting values will define the quantity of minor actinides that can be transmuted per year.
