    I would like to model a discharge spike. My problem is the trigger. If I
    use a simple model of a high voltage accros a capacitor and the discharge is
    an arc at the capacitor, I want to look at the current spike when the air
    ( or dielectric ) breaks down and allows the spike. Any ideas on how to
    iniate the breakdown?
