The temperature-dependent characteristics of ac plasma display panels (PDPs) are investigated, based on various case studies using a conventional driving scheme with reset pulses. Though the main factor of the thermal effects is caused by strong sustain discharges, it is not only caused by the panel characteristics, but also by the temperature-dependent characteristics of the driving system. One important thermal effect is a decreased breakdown voltage due to an increase in the panel temperature. Therefore, these results may be helpful in solving image-sticking and temperature-related phenomena.
