Electrostatic simulation*

Electrostatic simulation is the term used for electromagnetic simulation when no magnetic field is present, and electric charge distribution does not change, or changes are relatively slow and may be neglected. One of the most effective technologies for electrostatic simulations is a finite element method.

Electrostatic simulations became popular with advancing of personal computing since 1960-s, and currently most of the electrical engineers graduating from Universities have some experience in electrostatic simulation methods and tools available.

QuickField software provides easy way of introducing novices to electrostatic simulation through the set of online tutorials in the Virtual Classroom and examples.

However, it may be also used by experts for electrostatic simulation of real industrial devices like insulators, capacitors, lasers, semiconducting devices, LCD displays etc, both for individual calculations and parameterized analysis and optimization.

More details about electrostatic simulations in QuickField you may learn from the Theoretic Description chapter of QuickField manual, or from the brief description of Electrostatic package.

  • Electrostatic simulation examples:
    Cylindrical capacitor
    Microstrip transmission line
    Spherical deflector
    Electric field near the corner of two intersecting conducting planes.
