**Order of Magnitude Improvement of SDBD Actuator Effect**

T. Corke, F. Thomas, D. Orlov, M. Iqbal, A. Kozlov, H. Othman, D. Shatzman Center for Flow Physics and Control Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering University of Notre Dame Nov. 8, 2006 AF Academy Workshop on Plasma Actuators

**Questions: How do we improve the performance of SDBD plasma actuators?**

What are the governing properties? What is the ultimate performance limit? Nov. 8, 2006 AF Academy Workshop on Plasma Actuators

**Approach: Develop space-time model for ionization in SDBD operation.**

Include amplitude and frequency effects. Not including maximum limits. Compare to experiments. Perform experiments that investigate limiting conditions on SDBD design and operation parameters. Develop a theory to be included in space-time model. Nov. 8, 2006 AF Academy Workshop on Plasma Actuators

**SDBD Actuators: What we know**

Three time scales: Micro discharges (nsec) a.c. period (.1ms) Fluid response (10ms) Ionization space-time dependent. Static models give wrong results (e.g. fb~V2). Temporal/space-uniform models give correct V-dependence (fb~V7/2), need spatial weighting Space-time models give correct V, frequency and space dependence (Orlov, 2006).

**Frequency Dependence of fb & Wp**

Impact: Optimum frequency for body force. Depends on actuator capacitance. Nov. 8, 2006 AF Academy Workshop on Plasma Actuators

15
**What limits maximum body force?**

SDBD Plasma actuator is voltage driven, fb~V7/2. Not current driven like voice-coil type actuators. For fixed power (I·V), one needs to limit current to maximize voltage. What governs maximum achievable voltage for fixed power? Nov. 8, 2006 AF Academy Workshop on Plasma Actuators

**Maximum Voltage Optimization**

18
Premise The maximum voltage at fixed power is limited by local electric field exceeding breakdown of air. Thicker dielectrics and/or lower dielectric constants reduce capacitance of actuator and reduce concentration of electric field lines. Other parameters?

Dielectric design (t & ) and a.c. frequency. Ultimate performance limit? Maximum local E-field for air breakdown? Nov. 8, 2006 AF Academy Workshop on Plasma Actuators
