Abstract : This project concerns the development of a plasma flow control system for wind turbines. This document describes the technical progress made towards this goal during the 12-month Phase I effort that began in February, 2012. The Phase I project had four distinct objectives: (1) preliminary design of a plasma flow control system with manual control for wind turbines, (2) design and construction of laboratory facilities to permit component test and evaluation, (3) development and validation of simulation tools, and (4) field demonstration of a prototype system. Significant progress was made towards each of these goals, culminating in the field demonstration of a manually-controlled plasma flow control system on a 20 kW test turbine.
