The production and transport processes of the H$$^0$$ atom are numerically simulated to obtain the H$$^0$$ atom density. The three dimensional transport code using the Monte Carlo method has been applied to H$$^0$$ atoms in the large "JAEA 10 ampere negative ion source" under the Cs-seeded condition. In this study, the production rate of H$$^0$$ atoms through the dissociation process of H$$_2$$ molecules is estimated from single probe characteristics of the Langmuir probe measurement. In addition, the energy relaxation process of H$$^0$$ atoms is also considered. The results show that the existence of high-energy electrons and the energy relaxation process of H$$^0$$ atoms affect the H$$^0$$ atom density.
