We investigated the amount of the toxic gases emitted from the Electrostatic Precipitators(ESPs), which were currently used by indoor air cleaners. We used the wire-to-plate(WTP) type and the needle-to-plate(NTP) type corona discharger in our study. Using the voltage, the polarity of wire, the number of needles of NTP as the input variables, we studied the characteristic of Ozone and $NO_x$ generation in the ESPs. As the results, we found out that the concentration of Ozone, $NO_2$ and $NO_x$ is increased, but the amount of NO is decreased with increasing the voltage and the number of needles. And we knew that the generation rate of ozone and $NO_x$ is very related with the corona region.
