Repetitive nanosecond pulsed plasma

Hi,

Can I model Nanosecond pulsed plasma with Comsol 5.2a? If yes, any useful materials?

Thanks!

Theoretically, it is possible even with a highly complicated kinetic model. However, in my experience, converging is very hard. If your model is quite simple, you may use 'plasma , time periodic' module in Plasma interface

goodluck

Yes the solution is not converging and my model is not simple i guess.

I have imported an external CR circuit (.cir) to produce nanosecond voltage and also I am using plasma interfce. I have attached the electrical circuit. Does anything else is needed to connect two interfaces ( I have defined a metal contact as the discharge component and the ground under the plasma interface).

I am getting several errors and the model in not converging. Can you guide me please.
