Title

FDTD Modelling of Nonlinear Spark in Electrostatic Discharge

Abstract

An accurate numerical method for calculating nonlinear electrostatic discharges is presented. The method represents an improvement over the FDTD scheme in that it includes the arc model of Rompe and Weizel. Numerical results that demonstrate the validity and accuracy of the model are presented.
