The dependences of the parameters of corona discharge current–voltage characteristics on the gas temperature are considered in this work. It is shown that the corona discharge ignition voltage Uc(T) of helium and nitrogen decreases with the increase in temperature. The dependence of the parameter A(T) is complicated. It increases at the initial and final sections of the studied temperature range (20–369°C) and decreases at its central portion with two extrema. As the discharge in nitrogen is unstable, we failed to obtain any definite regularity. Generalized dependences that make assertions about the presence of a discharge different from a corona are presented. We made an assumption of an important role of two effects in the observed processes: the absorption of ions by the surface of electrodes and the continuous change in ion mobility due to the ion mass variation in the course of clustering and declustering of ions. It is supposed that there is a dynamic equilibrium between them in a steady state.
