Hrvoje Abraham and Vjekoslav Kovac, From electrostatic potentials to yet another triangle center,
Forum Geometricorum, 15 (2015) 73--89.

Abstract. We study the problem of finding a point of maximal electrostatic potential inside an arbitrary triangle with homogeneous surface charge distribution. In this article we derive several synthetic and analytic relations for its location in the plane. Moreover, this point satisfies the definition of a triangle center, different from any of previously discovered centers in Clark Kimberling's encyclopedia.
