Source particles
Hello, I'm simulating a thruster+cathode configuration to check the neutralization of the plume and I've been playing a lot with timesteps lately. I've noticed that when i increase the sourcedt/simulationDt and sourceDuration, the number of particles emitted by the cathode increases by several powers of 10.

I would like to understand what should i set up to make my source emit less particles if I want to increase the simulation Dt. Can somebody explain the relation between SimulationDt, sourceDt and sourceDuration?

Thanks Alessandro
