In this paper, we extended the recent work of Liu and Becerra to employ the position-state separation (POSS) method to simulate filamentary streamer discharges. POSS is a semi-Lagrangian method, which solves convection-dominated continuity equations without numerical flux correction. An improved interpolation strategy for POSS is here introduced to overcome the excessive numerical diffusion of the method when very small time step is used. Several benchmark tests in the literature are used to validate the improved method. Numerical experiments show that POSS is an accurate, efficient, and robust numerical method to simulate streamer discharges in arbitrary geometries when combined with finite-element method.
