Abstract

This paper presents the results of analyses of the transient resistance and inductance of spark plasma, parameters which have been obtained using the hydrodynamic approach described in [2], and a new model for plasma resistance. A lumped RLC model to represent the transient process in the spark-discharge plasma has been built and solved using PSpice simulation software. The dynamic plasma resistance, R(t), and inductance, L(t), have been used in the lumped-element circuit.
