    The generation of ozone in the plasma actuator that consists of simple parallel line electrodes separated by a thin dielectric layer was evaluated at the frequency less than 1000 Hz. It was measured that the ozone generation was increased under the conditions of high applied voltage and high frequency but irrelevant to the gap between the electrodes. The measured ozone concentration under the conditions of 6 kV -1000 Hz applied voltage and 1.5 liter/min flow rate was approximately 100 ppm, which is much higher than the human safety standard value of 0.1 ppm.
