New Functionality in Version 4.3a


Plasma Modeling
  • An updated Electric Potential feature is available in the DC Discharge and Capacitively Coupled Plasma user interfaces. It contain quick choices for the following common external circuits:
  • None (the default)
  • Series RC circuit
  • Ballast resistor
  • Blocking capacitor
  • A finite volume discretization is available for the DC Discharge and Capacitively Coupled Plasma user interfaces if you activate the Advanced Physics Options. Note that the following boundary conditions are not compatible with the finite volume discretization:
  • Terminal
  • Distributed Capacitance
  • Thin Low-Permittivity Gap
  • Floating Potential

Updated Model

The positive_column_2D model has been updated to use the updated Electric Potential feature.
