Simulation of Gas Discharge in Tube and Paschen’s Law
Abstract: According to the related theory about gas discharge, the numerical model of a gas discharge tube is established. With the help of particle simulation method, the curve of relationship between gas ignition voltage, gas pressure and electrode distance product is studied through computer simulation on physical process of producing plasma by DC neon discharge, and a complete consistence between the simulation result and the experimental curve is realized.
