Abstract: Actuation devices are crucial components of closed-loop flow control schemes. Synthetic jetlike actuators, which are commonly employed in cavity flow control, exhibit a dynamic response that, if ignored, may significantly affect the overall characteristics of the closed-loop system. This paper presents the development and implementation of a dynamic compensator for a synthetic jetlike compression driver actuator which has been successfully implemented for feedback control of subsonic cavity flows. A time-delay model of the actuator dynamics is obtained from experimental data using subspace-based identification methods. The model is designed to match the frequency response of the physical system in a frequency range of interest that covers the resonance frequencies of the cavity. The model is then used for the synthesis of a dynamic controller which employs a Smith predictor in conjunction with an H∞ mixed-sensitivity design. Order reduction is applied to obtain a low-order digital controller amenable to real-time applications. The compensator is retrofitted to an existing cavity flow control architecture, and used to force the actuator output to closely follow the input commands, thereby compensating undesirable actuator dynamics. Experiments show that the integration of the actuator compensator within the cavity control system significantly improves closed-loop performance.
