ADEX-GHPS will enable the development of high-performance ADEX systems for the control of critical processes of the MYRRHA proton accelerator.

In News — November 12 2017

The Spanish Ministry of Energy, Tourism and Digital Agenda will finance the development of an ADEX Generic High-Performance System (ADEX-GHPS) within the * Acción Estratégica Economía y Sociedad Digital Convocatoria 1/2017 (AEESD) of the Ministry Scientific and Technical Research and Innovation Plan. The project started last July and will last for two and a half years. The financing grant amounts to 633,247€.   ADEX-GHPS will enable the configuration and implementation of optimized control strategies to define high-performance ADEX (HP-ADEX) systems for the optimized adaptive intelligent control of complex dynamic processes which require control periods in microseconds. ADEX-GHPS will be applied to the critical processes of the MYRRHA proton accelerator to ensure reliable and optimized operation of the transmutation reactor designed to solve the problem of nuclear waste treatment.   ADEX-GHPS will enable ADEX S.L. to develop the intelligent control system of the proton accelerator for the MYRRHA 100MeV project, prelude to the accelerator of the MYRRHA, and also penetrate the incipient and promising market of particle accelerator intelligent control.   The ADEX-GHPS project is co-financed by the Ministry of Energy, Tourism and Digital Agenda, within the National Plan for Scientific Research, Development and Technological Innovation 2013-2016, with file number TSI-100111-2017-4, and by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF).
