I'm currently trying to model the electric field distribution of liver tissue. I have two electrodes, one grounded and the other at 500V inside the liver domain. I am using Poisson's equation (which has a conductivity function of the electric field, ec.normE), and the electric currents physics. I also have an electric field dependent conductivity function in the model and it is applied under the liver material and is also part of the Poisson's equation.
When running the time dependent study, I get the following error: "Failed to find consistent initial values. Last time step is not converged."
I was wondering what this error means, and where in my model is causing this error. I am also relatively new to COMSOL, and any advice would be hugely appreciated!
Attached is the model.
Thank you for your time!
