This paper presents the results of an experimental study of a gas discharge with a flowing liquid electrolyte cathode under combustion conditions inside a chamber with walls made of a refractory material. The copper anode was placed above the cathode. The interelectrode distance was 20 cm. Aqueous solutions of sodium chloride with a concentration of 0.2-0.3 mol/l were used as the electrolyte. The electric power source was a three-phase rectifier with an output voltage of 2100 V. The discharge
