Streamer corona discharges produced by pulsed power make enough high energy electrons to dissociate gases directly. Consequently, pulsed streamer discharges have been proposed for the removal of NO/sub x/ and SO/sub 2/ from flue gases, the production of ozone and the treatment of poisonous gases. It is proposed here to produce the pulsed streamer discharges on a spiral transmission line. The characteristics of the discharges are studied, comparing with results using a PSpice code. Then, the effectiveness and advantages of the spiral transmission line are discussed in view of real applications.
