Abstract ⎯ A computational model for representing an Electric Charge Trajectory within a magnetic field can be used to establish the basis for further development and research on the plasma physics domain. Regardless the mathematical models used for such simulations, constraints are always present. Particularly in terms of accuracy of the output, time for processing, and amount of information. This paper presents a comparison between three processing models on a Windows HPC environment using: MPI, Microsoft Task Parallel Library, and simple programming. By using concepts of object oriented programming with C#, high performance computing with parallel processing, and system integration with ParaView or MATLAB for scientific visualization, an entire solution is provided to help on understanding the basis for plasma physics by means of a high capacity computer simulation. Key Terms ⎯ Object Oriented Software Design, Parallel Processing, ParaView, Plasma Physics.
