In the abstract a procedure for the correct tuning of RF-traps is shown. The proposed procedure minimizes the influence of the measurement itself. The results of the abstract are based on simulations with CST Microwave Studio. The proposed procedure is to use the original environment to induce a high voltage at the input of the trap and determine the minimum of the current rating curve at the output of the trap. The simulations were performed on a standard Birdcage coil with two feeding cables.
