In an accelerator for a N-NBI, there are several processes of secondary-particle production such as the collision of H$$^-$$ ions with H$$_2$$ gas, extraction of H$$_{2}^{+}$$ ions from beam plasma, and secondary-electron emission. The secondary particles cause heat load to the NBI components. It is necessary to analyze behavior of them in the accelerator. In this report, the secondary-particle behavior in MAMuG type MeV accelerator at JAEA has been analyzed by EAMCC. In the result, it is clarified that about 40% of H$$^-$$ ions extracted from the ion source were lost by the stripping process in the MeV accelerator. More than 90% of the heat load to the intermediate grids was caused by collision of the electrons. A comparison of results obtained from experiments and present analyses showed different tendency in the currents flowing into the 2nd and the 3rd intermediate grids. This is supposed due to H$$_{2}^{+}$$ ions extracted from beam plasma as a possible cause of the difference.
