The models proposed for the positive long air gap electrical discharge can be considered to be either engineering or physical in their approach. In this work, we make a general review of the available models and use two of them for a comparison with experimental data. Common underlying assumptions were found in most of the models analyzed. The comparison with the experimental data revealed that the results obtained from the models were a good representation of the physical situation when the leader potential distribution and the leader-corona region evolution were described with certain physical assumptions.
