Simulation of Initial Stage of Nanosecond Volume HighPpressure Gas Discharge
Keywords:glow discharge, gas discharge formation, cathode layer of glow discharge
The initial stage simulation of a nanosecond volume gas discharge under high pressures is presented. The
ionization phenomena and charged particles transfer are investigated in the context of the local-field
model base on the 1D system of hydrodynamic equations. The continuity equations are solved numerically,
and the electric field is calculated from quadrature solution of Poisson's equation. The new details
of the formation mechanism of the glow discharge were discovered.
