AB - During the FY 2013 RHIC polarized proton run, deterioration of the abort kicker system was observed. The reduced kicks resulted in quenching the superconducting quadrupole Q4 downstream of the beam dump. Frequent re-tuning of the modulator wave form temporarily mitigated the effect, which worsened during the course of the run. Beam-induced heating of the kicker ferrites was evenutally identified as the root cause of this behavior. We report our observations and discuss modifications to the kickers.
