This paper presents the numerical simulation of the plasma flow into a dense atmosphere. The plasma generation is performed by the simple model developed by Eichert. Two models are exposed to take in account the arc fluctuation inside the anode. They permit us to simulate plasma puffs convected into the flow. The aim of this study is to compare these two models with experiments and to determine which one is the most relevant.
