Abstract : To explain the generation of electrical oscillations in A.C. discharge the spark process in the discharge is envisaged. There is a formation of positive cloud, which fluctuates with a frequency governed by the formative time lag. These cloud inhibits the electron avalanche so as to produce velocity modulation and acts like a buncher. A sort of feed back is envisaged between the applied field and the field of the positive cloud so as to sustain oscillations. These oscillations are independent of certain parameters for which explanation is given.
