A self-consistent numerical model is used to investigate the effect of electronegative impurities on the ozone yield in a dielectric barrier discharge with a pulsed voltage supply, and the range of impurity concentrations giving a substantial (two-or threefold) increase in the ozone yield is established. Sulfur hexafluoride is considered as a representative component having strong electronegative properties. It is shown that a tiny admixture [SF6]<0.1% can have an appreciable effect on the characteristics of an ozonator. The calculations are compared with published experimental data and given an interpretation.
