Keywords: Micro Electro Mechanical Systems (MEMS), finite elements (FE), Trefftz, p-elements, capacitance, hybrid FE-Trefftz

Abstract:
The paper discusses efficient electrostatic field solutions techniques to simulate micro electro mechanical systems (MEMS): adaptive p-elements to remove the burden of manual mesh refinement; hybrid finite elements - Trefftz formulation to treat open boundary problems; energy based capacitance matrix and lumped capacitance value extraction.
