Models proposed to explain the breakdown mechanisms of the solid insulating materials are based, among others, on electromagnetic theory, avalanche theory and fractals. In this paper the breakdown of insulating materials is simulated using von Neumann's Cellular Automata (CAs). An algorithm for solid dielectric breakdown simulation based on CAs is presented with a point/plane electrode arrangement. The algorithm is also used to simulate breakdown in a solid dielectric having a spherical void
