The aim of this paper is the modeling of a dielectric barrier discharge at atmospheric pressure, in the Townsend regime. This model is based on an equivalent electrical circuit. It takes into account the main physical phenomena of the discharge. This model allows to have a general view of the process and to study the influence of the power supply on the discharge. It is also an interesting tool for the power supply design and the process optimization.
