A parametric study of the characteristics of coaxial dielectric barrier discharge sustained in atmospheric pressure argon is carried out. The numerical model is based on the drift-diffusion theory of gas discharges. The integral characteristics of the discharge, such as the root mean square of the discharge current, the period average dissipated power, and the efficiency of the power deposition, are explored in the parameter space spanned by the voltage amplitude and frequency of the applied AC field, the barrier dielectric constant, and the gas gap width.
