The theory of the two-stream instability is used to validate the initial phase of a developing code which ultimately aims to simulate the generation of VLF chorus. A one dimensional Particle-in-Cell simulation shows that waves are generated when a warm electron beam is injected into a cold background plasma with components of the electric field being excited. After a few time steps the phase space reveals a distortion of the beam and the creation of potential holes, causing electrons to oscillate.
