Gliding discharges at atmospheric pressure were investigated in the GREMI laboratory for different applications such as syngas production from methane steam reforming.

In our case, the kinetics could be described by using a simplified second order model in which the rate reaction coefficient is obtained from a linearization of parameters.

Calculated and experimental data are presented together with a discussion on the effect of the sensitive parameters for efficiency improvement.
