In this paper, the matching between a pulsed-power modulator and a streamer plasma reactor is discussed. The total process of energizing the reactor is divided into three different steps: before, during, and after plasma generation. Equivalent circuit models are used to obtain insight in the relevant mechanisms. Experiments are used to validate the results of the modeling. Based upon the results, design criteria are derived that can be used to design energy efficient streamer plasma systems.
