The paper discussed the effect of the gas flow rate and the addition of glass pellets dielectric on the growth inhibition of Microcystis aeruginosa (M.aeruginosa) and the concentration of hydrogen peroxide,the effect of energy input and pH on the growth inhibition of M.aeruginosa and the effect of packed-bed reactor on the algal Chl-a and cell density.The results show that the increasing of the gas flow rate and the addition of glass pellets dielectric enhance the effect of the discharge plasma reactor on the growth inhibition of M.aeruginosa immediately after discharge,but the effect is unobvious.The algal optical density slightly increases and then markedly decreases during the incubation period,e.g.,the removal efficiency of the algal optical density is high to 87.3% at the end of the fifth day at an air flow rate of 0.75(m~3/h) after 40 min treatment in the packed-bed discharge plasma reactor.The concentration of hydrogen peroxide is enhanced by the increase in the gas flow rate and the addition of glass pellets dielectric into the discharge plasma reactor,too,especially the concentration of hydrogen peroxide enhanced from 4.6(μmol/L) to 38.3(μmol/L) by the addition of glass pellets dielectric,which will enhance the destructive effect of hydrogen peroxide on the algae during the incubation period.The effect of the growth inhibition of M.aeruginosa is obvious with the increasing in the energy input into the packed-bed discharge plasma reactor.The effect of the alkaline solution on the growth inhibition of M.aeruginosa is more higher than that of the acidic solution,and the value of pH is increased under the acidic condition and decreased under the alkaline condition,but the tread of pH is to be neutral during the incubation period.The decrease of the content of Chl-a and cell density is marked in this reactor,and at the end of the fifth day,the removal efficiencies of Chl-a and cell density are high to 100%.
