  The proposed Compact Linear Collider (CLIC) is based on a two-beam acceleration scheme. The energy of two high-intensity, low-energy drive beams is extracted and transferred to two low-intensity, high-energy main beams. The machine protection and electrical integrity group has the mission to protect the various machine components from damage caused by ill controlled beams. Various failure scenarios were studied and the potential damage these failures could cause to the machine structures were estimated. In this paper, first results of the beam response to correctors and/or quadrupole kick failures in the main linac and in the beam delivery system (BDS) sections are presented as well as possible collimator damage scenarios. The use of the code PLACET for machine protection analysis is described as well.
