Computer simulation of electrostatic discharge (ESD) for simplified objects is described and compared to measured transient fields of human/metal ESD. The simulation algorithm uses the method of moments in time domain, coupled with nonlinear arc resistance model. Transient currents and fields are analyzed from the electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) point of view. Validation of the numerical simulation is done by comparison to experimental data. The simulated structure models the human/metal ESD in its peak current and field values and their derivatives reasonably well.
