This work is a contribution to the understanding of mechanisms controlling the Atmospheric Pressure Glow Discharge (APGD). The approach consists in developing an electrical model of the discharge based on electrical circuit compounds. This model takes into account the main phenomena of the discharge including the memory effect and the creation of the cathode fall. It allows to have a general view of the process and can be easily associated to the power supply with short computational duration; it is also an interesting tool for the optimization of the whole process.
