Abstract

Among various devices used in active flow control, plasma synthetic jet actuators seem to be a promising technology to improve aircraft performances. This paper presents a new physical model able to predict the temporal evolution of the main thermodynamic variables of the device. Results for both single pulse mode and repetitive working regime are reported, providing insights of their characteristics. The work is completed by an analysis of the actuator frequency response, followed by a comparison with literature results.
