Instantaneous DC conduction currents of biased electrodes during multipacting were measured and multipacting related processes are discussed. It is shown that by pUlsing the dee bias instead of keeping it steady, several important advantages may be gained with respect to RF amplitude buildup and discharge prevention and quenching. The breakdown protection system using bias pUlsing in operation at the Nevis Synchrocyclotron is presented.
