Dielectric Barrier Discharge Plasma Actuator for Load Alleviation and Instability Control in a Compressor Cascade
University of Salento, Department of Engineering of Innovation,
The aim of this study is to investigate the performance of dielectric barrier discharge plasma actuators (DBD-PAs) applied to control the aeroelastic response of a compressor cascade in subsonic flow conditions. Simulations involve a cascade composed by 7-blade, 3 of which show a not-synchronous pitching behaviour. Two different inter blade phase angle (IBPA) have been tested and compared. Actuators capabilities in terms of load alleviation and instability control have been evaluated through the measurement of mean value, standard deviation and hysteresis area of the airfoil response in terms of lift and moment coefficients.
