CENEMS is a user-friendly tool that computes the surface charge density distribution on the surface of the conductors in a multi-conductor system. CENEMS contains a graphical user interface which will allow users to design multi-conductor systems, including drawing conductors, specifying applied voltage and discretization level (the higher the level, the finer the discretization) for the conductors. After running the simulation, users can immediately see the surface charge density distribution on the conductors. CENEMS solves the exterior potential problem and computes the surface charge density by using boundary integral equations and a Boundary Cloud Method (BCM).
