We describe a three-dimensional code modelling the propagation of charged beams in accelerator devices. The inclusion of space charge fields is taken into account by means of the Lienard-Wiechert retarded potentials. As an illustration of the capabilities of the program, the results of a simulation are given that, describe the beam dynamics from the cathode to the undulator through the whole accelerating system. Evidence of bunching in the undulator, as an indication of SASE is observed.
