Abstract: In this paper,plasma inducing static air flow is investigated,in which the plasma is generated by a high-voltage RF (radio frequence) actuator  and  the affection of different plasma actuator excitation intensities,size and situation to the flow field are analyzed.The  investigative results show that the plasma actuator can induce  and  accelerate the static air  flow,the flow accelerative character of the plasma actuator is significant and can be used to control flow,such as drag-reduction and acceleration of the vehicle,flow separation control of the engine inlet,or thrust-vectoring control of engine exit flow.

Key words: plasma actuator;magnetofluid, electrofluid, flow control
