Prediction of RF breakdown in microwave structures for satellite applications with FEST3D

In this paper, a software tool for the prediction of the corona discharge and the multipactor thresholds in passive components based on rectangular geometry for space applications is presented.The software tool has been compare to measurements showing a very good agreement.
