- Volume dielectric barrier discharge (VDBD) is considered to be the most effective method for ozone generation. This paper reports a comparison between a simple ‘classic’ VDBD cylindrical ozone generator and a ‘metallic-mesh-filled-air-gap cylindrical dielectric barrier discharge’ model. The obtained results show that although the majority of ozone generators are of the volume discharge type, the novel volume discharge model has provided better results in terms of ozone generation and energy efficiency. A skid was built by using eight proposed generators and was successfully used for wastewater treatment.
