We study the Electrical Impedance Equation within a special class of domains, whose boundaries posses non-smooth points. The forward Dirichlet boundary value problem is solved bias a novel numerical method, based upon the Pseudoanalytic Function Theory, that does not require additional regularization techniques to fulfill the boundary condition at the non-smooth points.
