AB - A Li(d, xn) fusion relevant neutron source with a broad peak at 14 MeV is indispensable to characterize and qualify suitable structural materials for the plasma facing components in future fusion reactors. LIPAc (Linear IFMIF Prototype Accelerator), presently under its installation and commissioning phase in Rokkasho, will validate the concept of a 40 MeV deuteron accelerator with its 125 mA CW and 9 MeV deuteron beam for a total beam average power of 1.125 MW. The Machine Protection System (MPS) of LIPAc provides the essential interlock function of stopping the beam in case of excessive beam loss or other hazardous situations. However, approaching LIPAc beam commissioning Phase B (including RFQ powered by total 1.6 MW RF power) a risk analysis has been performed on all major technical systems to identify the sources of risk, apply the necessary countermeasures and enhance accelerator availability, avoiding unnecessary beam stop triggers and allowing a fast beam recovery whenever possible. The overall strategy for the machine protection at LIPAc is presented in this paper.
