2 Objectives Optimize phased-plasma actuators for high-speed applications Develop models that include actuator configurations and fluid response

3 Plasma Actuator Concepts Plasma forms in regions of highest electric field strength “electrostatic body force” In 1-D represents a P-grad Plasma Cathode Dielectric Insulator a.c. supply Anodes in parallel circuit PEPE

4 Electrostatic Body Force Electrostatic Body Force has limited effect – giving induced velocities ~3m/s Phasing Plasma Arrays have the potential to increase this by 100 times Roth, Sherman, & Wilkinson – AIAA Post, Erturk, & Corke – January 2001

5 Approach Develop numerical models of the plasma actuators Optimize electrode arrangements Better designs and electronics Improved actuator response and endurance 1. MODELLING 2. FABRICATION AND MEASUREMENT
