|We present a robust method of current peaks detection which can be easily applied to the atmospheric pressure dielectric barrier discharge characterization. This method uses passive filters and is suitable for automation. The design of apparatus and challenges are discussed in detail. We present an adapted definition of ignition voltage suitable for our method and show its relevance on a large statistical sample. Finally, we show the applicability of the method for atmospheric and lower pressure discharges and estimate its limits.
