RF-currents of CCPs exhibit complex electron dynamics referred to as self-excited plasma series resonances. To simulate this phenomenon a multi-mode model consisting of a linear bulk model coupled to a non-linear sheath model is presented. This presentation covers the bulk model and details on the sheath model are given in the Talk by Elgendy et al.[1,2,3]
