I'm trying to model my problem as described in the previous post. During the simulation I get the following exception:

Exception in thread Thread-2:

spis.Util.Exception.SpisRuntimeException: spis.Util.Exception.SpisRuntimeException: crossTetraVaryingE: initial point not in right tetrahedron!

What does it mean? Please, I would really appreciate any kind of help!

I'm trying to model a spacecraft with high voltage exposed electrodes on the solar arrays. The spacecraft orbits around the Earth in a high density ionospheric environment (n=1e11 /m^3 Te=0.2 eV Ti=0.1 eV). I was thinking about using a hybrid multi-zone volume distribution for electrons and a PIC Volume distribution for ions with a nonlinear Poisson solver. In your opinion, what is the best way of modelling this kind of problem?
