Research on corona discharges from plasma generators has been studied using the line-plane configurations (L-PC). The purpose of this study is to calculate the comparison of the level of conformity of the voltage current characteristic curve (I–V) from the simulation results of numerical calculations of the electrode geometry function and the results of experimental data. There is an electrode (electrode 1) in the form of a rectangular plate with a very thin thickness which has a length and width of a and b respectively in an upright position (line configuration). Electrode 1 has a distance of c to electrode 2 which is in a lying position (plane configuration) below the electrode 1. Furthermore, by using variation of c of 2.5 cm, 2.8 cm, 3.1 cm and 3.4 cm, the two electrodes are connected to the plasma generating equipment, thus producing a plasma discharge that comes out of the tip of the electrode 1 towards electrode 2. Research results from all variations of c prove that there is a high degree of suitability between numerical calculations with experimental data by taking the value of the fitting for the sharpness shape factor of k in the area with the largest plasma discharge.
