The paper provides two accurate and efficient models of electrostatic discharge (ESD) generators which permit to reproduce the discharge current in the contact mode taking into account the load effect. The first model is based on a circuit approach and is suitable to be implemented in any commercial circuit simulator. The second model is based on the numerical solution of the field equations by using the commercial numerical code Microwave Studio (MWS) based on the finite integration technique. The validation of the proposed circuit and numerical models is carried out by comparison with measurements.
