Abstract
It is common, diffusive glow regime of steady-state positive corona is followed by streamer regime with increase in overage corona current. The coefficient of ionization multiplication of electron avalanche over interelectrode gap in glow corona is less than that is necessary for the avalanch-to-streamer transition. Under such conditions, a local development of ionization instability nearby the sharpened electrode plays crucial role in initiation of mild streamers in glow corona. Indeed using a fast frame camera we have revealed on electrode the occurrence of small high-density current spots, which provoked the mild streamer in glow corona. A transient behavior of these streamers followed by spark was examined in detail for a positive pin-plane corona in pure nitrogen and ambient air at atmospheric pressure. It was observed that scenarios for the streamers-to-spark transition in air and N2 differed essentially from each other.
