A full wave three dimensional meshless approach for electromagnetic transient simulations is presented. The smoothed particle hydrodynamic (SPH) method is used by considering the particles as interpolation points, arbitrarily placed in the computational domain. Maxwell’s equations in time domain with the assigned boundary and initial conditions are numerically solved by means of the proposed method. The computational tool is assessed and, for the first time, a 3D test problem is simulated in order to validate the proposed approach.
