A new setting of the gun coil magnetic field could be found to prevent this. After I-V2 years of operation, one of the gyrotrons degraded in performance: the output power decreased drastically during a pulse and the initial frequency drift continued without a tendency to saturate. Obviously the cavity cooling was not sufficient. Reversing the flow direction of the water in the cavity we came back to the original performance. We reversed the flow direction several times, always with the same result: in one direction the pulse degraded, in the other direction not.
