The influence of a glow electrical discharge on the wake behind two cylinders was studied. This effect consists in a redistribution of the power in the velocity pulsation spectrum due to the discharge action on fluid flow. To treat this observation, we need a simple model of intermittent turbulent wake in the vicinity of cylinders. A variant of such model has been developed in the form of two coupled van-der-Pole oscillators representing two interacting von Karman vortex streets behind the cylinders. According to the model, the set of the global wake modes and its concurrence are discussed. Accordingly, a mechanism of the glow discharge effect on the cylinders wake has been proposed.
