Abstract

A numerical simulation of a beam of runaway electrons formed from an individual emission zone on a cathode has been performed for discharges in air of atmospheric pressure. The model is based on solving numerically two-dimensional equations of motion for the electrons and allows one to describe the dynamics of the fast electrons injected from the surface of the emission zone. In calculations it was supposed that the electric field at the surface of the emission zone is enhanced due to which conditions are realized for the electrons injected from the surface to switch into the mode of continuous acceleration.
