Computer technique for calculations of potential distribution in multidielectric media
Abstract
A finitedifference method computer program for calculating the potential distribution for axisymmetric insulator configurations was developed. The program allows the use of unequal grid spacings and multiple dielectric constants. In addition, methods were developed to determine the potentials of conductors whose potentials are unknown, satisfy unknown grid boundary conditions, calculate electric flux line distributions, and plot the field lines by computer. The program has the flexibility to solve similar types of problems that involve the solution of Laplace's or Poisson's equations. Problems that consist of twodimensional geometries can be treated by using a variation of the axisymmetric program.
