  author={M. A.Castillo and Jog and I. Maizura and A F Cohen and Portonovo S. Ayyaswamy},
A wire-to-plane discharge during the early phases of breakdown has been studied. The discharge has been modeled in a prolate spheroidal coordinate system with the wire shape taken as a hyperboloid of revolution. Four simultaneous coupled, time-dependent, nonlinear partial differential equations describe the electrical discharge. These are the conservation… CONTINUE READING
