Abstract

In the present work artificially excited Tollmien–Schlichting (TS) waves were cancelled using plasma actuators operated in pulsed mode. In order to achieve this a vibrating surface driven by an electromagnetic turbulator was flush mounted in a flat plate to excite the TS waves. These were amplified by an adverse pressure gradient induced by an insert on the upper wall of the test section. A control plasma actuator positioned downstream of the excitation actuator attenuates the waves by imparting an unsteady force into the boundary layer to counteract the oscillation. As a result the amplitude of the velocity fluctuations at the excitation frequency is reduced significantly depending on the distance from the wall. A parameter study was performed to identify the influence of several operation parameters of the control actuator.
