We present two partial models applied in the atomic physics subpackage used in numerical simulations of pulsed-source-driven, non-ideal high-parameter plasmas. These are an electron EOS model and a model for electron conductivity coefficient calculations. The EOS model uses Dharma-Wardana exchange and a correlation correction that depends on both electron density and temperature. The electron thermal and electrical conductivity calculations are based on the Balescu-Lenard equation.
