A spectral model of fast electron transport accounting selfconsistent electric fields is described. The model is implemented within the ZARYA package intended for computing target implosion by laser radiation. A numerical method for solving fast electron transport equation is presented. Computational results are given to illustrate the importance of accounting fast electron scattering, selfconsistent electric fields, inverse current effects along with the possibility to interpret experiments on gasfilled shells both using a compressed target portion (compression level, neutron yield) and fast ions formation resulting from an acceleration by self consistent electric fields.
