Presentation Outline: Background SDBD Plasma Actuators Physics in addition to Modeling Flow Control Simulation Comparison to Other FC Actuators Example Applications LPT Separation Control Turbine Tip-gap Flow Control Turbulent Separation Control Summary Single-dielectric barrier discharge (SDBD) Plasma Actuator High voltage AC causes air to ionize (plasma). Ionized air in presence of electric field results in body as long as ce that acts on neutral air. Body as long as ce is mechanism of flow control. Ref: AIAA J., 42, 3, 2004 The SDBD is stable at atmospheric pressure because it is self-limiting due to charge accumulation on the dielectric surface.

Steady Actuator U =30 m/s, Rec=615K Comparison to Other FC Actuators SDBD plasma actuator is voltage driven, fb~V7/2. For fixed power (I·V), limit current to maximize voltage. Low ohmic losses. Flow simulations require body as long as ce field (not affected by external flow, solve once as long as given geometry). Zero-mass Unsteady Blowing generally uses voice-coil system. Current driven devices, V~I. Losses result in I2R heating. Flow simulations require actuator velocity field (flow dependent).
