[en] Highlights: • Long-pulse acceleration of MeV-class ion beams is demonstrated in JAEA. • The pulse length is extended from 0.4 s to 60 s, successfully. • R&D of 1 MV power supply is in progressed as scheduled. • Feasibility of 1 MV insulating transformer is confirmed in the mockup. - Abstract: Toward ITER, the long-pulse acceleration of MeV-class negative ion beams has been successfully demonstrated and R&Ds and the procurement of high-voltage components of 1 MV power supply system have been progressed. In the accelerator development after the production of 1 MeV beams, an extraction grid, where a water cooling is reinforced and the beam is steered by aperture offset to suppress grid heat loads, has been newly developed to extend the pulse duration of the MeV-class beams. As the result, a total grid heat load has been reduced from 20% to 10% of the total beam power. The beam pulse was successfully increased from 0.4 s to 60 s at 0.68 MeV, 100 A/m"2 and 12 s at 0.89 MeV, 156 A/m"2 beams. As for the procurement of the 1 MV power supply system, 1 MV insulating transformer as the critical component has been developed. In the mock-up, a dc 1.2 MV for 1 h with the margin of 20% was stably sustained. Through the R&Ds of the critical components, design of five power supplies procured by JAEA has been finalized, and out of which a testing power supply has been completed in June 2014.
