The circulator is biased to provide a better match at the frequency of interest.  The match  is  also   a  function of ambient temperature, water temperature at the input and output of the cooling circuit. The bias supply outputs a bias  current   that  self  adjusts  to  compensate   for   temperature  change  due  to  RF power  heating,   ambient temperature and cooling water temperature. It is not a very precise regulator. Further improvement is warranted.
