We have proposed an experimental study of the proton-driven plasma wakefield acceleration by using proton beam from the CERN SPS. In this paper, the particle-in-cell (PIC) simulation of the SPS beam-driven plasma wakefield acceleration is introduced. By varying the beam parameters and plasma parameters, simulation shows that electric fields in excess of 1 GeV/m can be achieved.
