Wind Turbine Performance Improvement, Unsteady Load and Acoustic Level Attenuation Using On-Blade Single Dielectric Barrier Discharge (SDBD) Plasma Actuators
The University of Notre Dame Center for Flow Physics and Control (FlowPAC) has pioneered the development of plasma actuators for aerodynamic control. Patented technology for the application of plasma-enhanced flow control of wind turbines will translate into increased capacity, normalized output, decreased structure weight, and decreased cost. A pr...

Truck Tractor and Trailer Aerodynamic Drag Reduction using Single Dielectric Barrier Discharge (SDBD) Plasma Actuators
Background: The drag produced by class 8 trucks requires two-thirds of the engine’s output to maintain a highway speed. To put in another way, a large portion of the power consumed by these types of vehicles is spent in overcoming aerodynamic drag. The reduction of this drag force would benefit vehicle characteristics, such as fuel efficien...

Plasma Optics
An innovative plasma based adaptive optics approach that improves the performance of optical systems by reducing the affect of external optical distortions. Plasma optics uses an array of miniature weakly ionized a.c. plasma "cells" to generate a fast responding, highly controllable wavefront to compensate for temporal and spatial distortion. This...
