This TFM starts with an introduction to the state of art of finite different time domain, where all publications of different fields related to FDTD subject are analyzed. Once the method is examined, the parameters that should be taken into account to set up the FDTD software in a wind turbine blade are defined. Afterwards, the methods used on the analysis of the transitory effects of the lightning stokes in a wind turbine blade are evaluated. Furthermore, it is showed a brief part of the code development of FDTD jointly with some simulations of software operation.
