The electric displacement field is defined as:
$\boldsymbol{D} = \varepsilon_0 \boldsymbol{E} + \boldsymbol{P}\ =\varepsilon \boldsymbol{E}$.

where:
ε0 is the permittivity of free space
E is the electric field intensity
P is the polarization of the medium

The folliwing use RC-circuit to show relation between displacement current and electric field.

To make it easier, the value of ε0 is assigned as 0.5

Un-check the off check box to connect the DC voltage source to the RC circuit (ON).
k is the dielectric constant $\varepsilon/\varepsilon_0$.
You can adjust voltage source Vs, resistance R, capacitance C.
