This paper describes an iterative method to solve efficiently the global algebraic system of equations obtained by applying the hybrid finite element method-boundary element method (FEM-BEM) to the solution of open-boundary electrostatic problems. In the proposed approach, a conjugate gradient (CG) solver is used to solve the FEM equations, whereas the BEM equations are solved by making use of the direct LU solver. To do so, it is convenient to implement the BEM equations in a nonconventional way, by choosing the nodes of the potential as not coinciding with those of its normal derivative.
