In this paper, a study of homogenous dielectric barrier discharge Ar–NH3 was made in order to investigate the electrical and the physical characteristics of homogenous discharge at atmospheric pressure. The discharge model includes the electrical module and the chemical kinetic module. The results obtained by the present model were compared with experimental work. The evolution of the plasmas voltage, the species densities, and the concentration of charged species are analyzed and discussed.

Key words: plasma simulation, dielectric barrier discharge, Ar–NH3 mixture
