This is a reply to the comment of Jiayong Zou on the paper 'Improvements for drift-diffusion plasma fluid models with explicit time integration'. The criticism in the comment, namely that the current-limited approach is inconsistent with the underlying partial different equations, seems to be invalid. However, this criticism raises an interesting question about the behavior of the current-limited scheme for a given time step, which is discussed in this reply.
