Abstract: Plasma actuators based on the One Atmosphere Uniform Glow Discharge Plasma (OAUGDPTM) can he used to accelerate and reattach flows, increase the stall angle of airfoils, and modify the aerodynamic boundary layer of aircraft at the relatively low power cost of 5 to ten watts per linear foot of actuator [1][2][3][4][5][6]. The characteristics and performance of OAUGD plasma actuators have been measured in the 7 x 1 I Low Speed Wind Tunnel located at the NASA Langley Research Center [3,4]. This wind tunnel was u…
