Abstract

Dielectric barrier discharge (DBD) plasma actuator is becoming a popular device in aeronautics application. Others mechanical devices such as vortex generator, slats and flaps produce noises and add more weight to the system. DBD plasma actuator is a special device due to its unique feature such as no moving parts involved, lower mass compared others and quick response. This review paper provides an overview of DBD plasma actuators application in aeronautics field. The findings from other researchers are compared and discussed to expand the potential of DBD plasma actuator by improving aerodynamic performance.
