Negative ions technology has been widely used to deal with air pollution problems in recent years. In this paper, a negative ions generating circuit is proposed for dealing with the exhaust gas in vehicle, which circuit generates high electric field to ionize the air. The number of active particles increases in the air, which react with the exhaust gas and make the air clean. The circuit analysis and simulation are presented in this paper, and a 6.44kV prototype is also realized to verify the performance.
