Abstract
A novel method of simulating charging of dielectrics by high energy electrons is introduced. The method uses a 3D Monte Carlo computer code and in-house developed codes to determine the charge and potential distribution inside the dielectric specimen. The results are compared with the results of the charging experiment carried out at the University of Toronto. This method can provide space system designers with the means of analyzing the charging of satellites and satellite components at the design stage.
