Abstract:

A finite-difference 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 Laplaces or Poissons equations. Problems that consist of two-dimensional geometries can be treated by using a variation of the axisymmetric program. Author
