  In the present design of the European Spallation Source (ESS) accelerator, the Drift Tube Linac (DTL) will accelerate a proton beam of 50 mA pulse peak current from 3 to 80 MeV. It is designed to operate at 352.2 MHz, with a duty cycle of 4% (3 ms pulse length, 14 Hz repetition period). Permanent magnet quadrupoles (PMQs) are used as focusing elements in a FODO lattice scheme, which leaves space for steerers and diagnostics . In this paper beam dynamics studies and preliminary RF design are shown, including constraints in terms of quadrupole dimensions, total length, field stability, RF power, peak electric field.
