The J-PARC is a high intensity proton facility and the accelerator consists of a 400 MeV linac, a 3 GeV Rapid Cycling Synchrotron (RCS) and a 30 GeV Main Ring Synchrotron (MR). Regarding 3 GeV beam from the RCS, we delivered it at 150 kW in June 2017 to the materials and life science experimental facility (MLF), for the neutron and muon users. After the replacement of a target, we increased a power up to 500 kW. The beam powers for the neutrino experiment at 30 GeV was 420 kW in May 2016, but increased to 490 kW in April 2018. For the hadron experimental facility which uses a slow beam extraction mode at 30 GeV, we delivered beam at a power of 37 kW, after the recovery from a trouble at an electro static septum in June 2017. But we increased a power to 50 kW in January 2018. We have experienced many failures and troubles to impede full potential and high availability. In this report, operational performance and status of the J-PARC accelerators are presented.
