TRADE (TRiga Accelerator Driven Experiment), to be performed in the TRIGA reactor of the ENEA-Casaccia Centre (Italy), consists in the coupling of an external proton accelerator to a target to be installed in the central channel of the reactor scrammed to sub-criticality. This pilot experiment, aimed at a global demonstration of the ADS concept, is based on an original idea of Carlo Rubbia.

Abstract

TRADE (TRiga Accelerator Driven Experiment), to be performed in the TRIGA reactor of the ENEA-Casaccia Centre (Italy), consists in the coupling of an external proton accelerator to a target to be installed in the central channel of the reactor scrammed to sub-criticality. This pilot experiment, aimed at a global demonstration of the ADS concept, is based on an original idea of Carlo Rubbia. The present paper reports the results of some neutronic analyses focused on the feasibility of such experiment. Results show that all relevant experiments (at different power levels in a wide range of sub-criticalities) can be carried out, with relatively limited modifications to the present TRIGA reactor.
