Light sources of the next generation such as ERLs require minimal beam losses as well as a stable beam position and emittance over the time. Instabilities caused by ionized residual gas have to be avoided. In this paper we present simulations of the behavior of ionized residual gas in the field of clearing electrodes and investigate e.g. clearing times. For these simulations we apply MOEVE PIC Tracking developed at Rostock University. We demonstrate numerical results with parameters planed for the ERL BERLinPro.
