19.5: Simulation of DC high-voltage breakdown for angled dielectric insulators including space-charge effects


This work reports on 2D Particle-In-Cell simulations focusing on DC multipactor breakdown initiated near a presumed triple-point current source. Models for space charge and dielectric charging are included. Simulation parameters include dielectric insulator angle, gap width, and applied voltage. Breakdown voltage as a function of angle is presented, and… (More)
