We have performed transient analysis of a nitride fueled and heavy liquid metal cooled accelerator driven system, in which the pitch-to-diameter ratio of pin lattice was set at 1.26. Unprotected loss-of-flow, unprotected transient-over-power and protected loss-of-heat-sink transients were simulated in a geometrical model of the suggested ADS design, using safety parameters obtained with the MCNP/MCNPX code.
