  abstract     = {The phase 1 of the SPIRAL2 facility, the extension project of the GANIL laboratory in Caen, France, is to be commissioned. The accelerator, composed of a normal conducting RFQ and a superconducting linac, is designed to accelerate high power deuteron and heavy ion beams up to 200 kW. A Machine Protection System (MPS) has been implemented to protect the accelerator from thermal damages for this very large range of beam intensities. This paper presents the solutions chosen for this system, composed of three subsystems: one dedicated to thermal protection which requires a PLC and a fast electronic system, a second one dedicated to enlarged safety protection, and a third safety subsystem dedicated to fast vacuum valve protection. Both of those subsystems work associated with a global EPICS-based control and HMI system, which gives the operation team global supervision of the accelerator and allows controlling sensor trigger thresholds, interlock system, beam initialization and power increase through the beam time structure. The MPS has been developed and is currently tested to be ready for the incoming SPIRAL2 commissioning.},
