In this article, we analyse an integral equation of the second kind that represents the solution of N interacting dielectric spherical particles undergoing mutual polarisation. A traditional analysis can not quantify the scaling of the stability constants- and thus the approximation error- with respect to the number N of involved dielectric spheres. We develop a new a priori error analysis that demonstrates N-independent stability of the continuous and discrete formulations of the integral equation. Consequently, we obtain convergence rates that are independent of N.
