ADS operating with solid fuel for power production is discussed. The components of the facility are accelerator, two targets und two blankets. Accumulation of fissile isotopes occurs in first blanket fed by natural or depleted uranium. Power generates in the second blanket fed by fuel elements containing fissile isotopes extracted from the first blanket. In contrast to the natural fuel reactors, the deep fuel burnup can be achieved in ADS by converting of the part of produced power into neutrons.
