Advantages and Disadvantages of Various Numerical Methods

Advantages and Disadvantages of Various Numerical Methods: For computing the electric fields, various methods have been used, viz. Finite Difference Method, Finite Element Method, Charge Simulation Method and Boundary Element Method. Each of these methods has its own advantages for solving a particular problem. With the FDM, the numerical evaluation of the difference equation is […]

Boundary Element Method

Boundary Element Method(BEM): Though the charge simulation method is known for its accuracy and speed, it is not very efficient in case of multi-dielectric problems and very thin electrodes, which are often used to control and get the electric field strength in condenser bushings, transformers, etc. Such problems can be solved using the Surface Charge […]
