A growing interest in Accelerator Driven Systems (ADS) has led to the establishment in Italy of a basic R&D program aimed at the study of the physics and technological development needed to design an ADS for nuclear waste transmutation. In the framework of such program, ENEA and Politecnico di Torino are carrying out some neutronic analyses focused on an ADS prototype of small size, named EAP80 (~80 MWth), fuelled with a standard fast reactor fuel (Superphénix 1 type), and cooled by Pb/Bi. The EAP80 prototype was conceived with close reference to Carlo Rubbia's Energy Amplifier proposal. Current neutronic activities cover the development of computational tools and static and kinetics analyses. The present work summarizes some preliminary results and specifications.

Abstract

A growing interest in Accelerator Driven Systems (ADS) has led to the establishment in Italy of a basic R&D program aimed at the study of the physics and technological development needed to design an ADS for nuclear waste transmutation. In the framework of such program, ENEA and Politecnico di Torino are carrying out some neutronic analyses focused on an ADS prototype of small size, named EAP80 (~80 MWth), fuelled with a standard fast reactor fuel (Superphénix 1 type), and cooled by Pb/Bi. The EAP80 prototype was conceived with close reference to Carlo Rubbia's Energy Amplifier proposal. Current neutronic activities cover the development of computational tools and static and kinetics analyses. The present work summarizes some preliminary results and specifications.
