A simple error estimation method for the moment method is proposed. The difference between the present solution and an approximate higher-order solution on the same mesh is used to estimate the error in surface currents. By solving a higher-order local problem on each triangular element, approximate higher-order solution is obtained. It is shown that a higher-order solution and the error in the lower-order solution can be estimated accurately by using the error estimation method.
