An electrical model for a dielectric barrier discharge (DBD) is proposed, with the aim of its application in power supply design process. An identification method, which finds the actual value of the parameters in a model, is presented. The specific modelling of a XeCl exciplex lamp is developed, along with the identification procedure of the parameters, using a sinusoidal and a pulsed experiment. Electrical representation of the model is done in two different simulators. The applicability of the identified model is proved with different experiments. Differences between experimental and simulated waveforms are minor, encouraging the use of the model in the construction of the converter for the DBD lamp.
