MYRRHA will be a research infrastructure highlighted by the first prototype of a sub-critical nuclear reactor driven by a 600 MeV particle accelerator (ADS). This project aims at exploring the transmutation of long-lived nuclear wastes. A first phase is planned to validate the reliability of a 100 MeV/4 mA Protons LINAC carrying the beam toward an ISOL facility, prefiguring the real MYRRHA demonstrator at 600 MeV. This project is called MINERVA. This paper presents the status of the beam dynamic studies for the high energy beam transport lines at 100 MeV. In agreement with the project require-ments, we describe the specificities of these beam lines for which it is needed to implement a fast kicker-septum. This system will separate the beam between two main lines: toward the beam dump or the ISOL facility. We also describe the studies on the Beam Position Monitor (BPM) selected for MYRRHA. Part of this work was sup-port by the MYRTE project of the European Union.
