This paper deals with the analysis of electrostatic problems involving moving devices by means of a perturbation finite element method. A reference problem without any moving parts is first solved and gives the source for a sequence of perturbation problems in subdomains restricted to the neighborhood of these parts. The source accounts for all the previous calculations for preceding positions what increases the efficiency of the simulations. This proposed approach also improves the computation accuracy and decreases the complexity of the analysis of moving conductors thanks to the use of independent and adaptively refined meshes.
