This paper proposes a novel accuracy improvement technique for the double-layer charge (DLC) formulation in shielding problems. Although the DLC formulation has advantages over the direct methods from the viewpoint of computational cost, the calculation accuracy can be worse because of cancellation errors. In order to improve the accuracy, we apply a new technique based on the difference field concept. Numerical results, which verify the effectiveness of the proposed method, are presented.
