Plasma streamers in dielectric liquid (transformer oil) consists of a charged particles (electron, positive and negative ion). It has many properties such as: streamer velocity, streamer diameter, mean electron energy, number of streamers branches and current density. Some of these properties has been detected by using the photographic technique to get a data it must be in a good agreement with the theoretical and experimental studies. The streamers properties are detected in this paper. The streamers diameters increase with the increase of voltage, and the streamers velocity has the same behavior of the diameter.
