The configuration of discharge electrode is closely related to the uniformity and the strength of corona plasma, which has big effect on the efficiency of plasma in destructing pollutants, treating materials and so on. A novel sheet electrode was devised to enhance the input energy and the uniformity of plasma’s distribution, and its production performance of plasma was compared with other discharge electrodes including wire, needle and multi-needles. Corona images and I-V characteristic curves of discharge electrodes indicate that ultra-thin sheet electrode could produce more uniform and stronger corona plasma zone than other electrodes in this paper, which is advantageous for decomposing pollutants, treating material surface and so on. Primary VOCs decomposition experiments were conducted, and the results indicated that the highest energy yield of VOCs decomposition reached 1.8 g (benzene) • (kWh)-1 /3.5 g (toluene) • (kWh)-1.
