A Lattice Boltzmann method was employed to simulate active boundary layer flow control by means of a low-temperature surface plasma. Plasma was generated by an AC input voltage over a surface electrode and an embedded electrode, resulting in an uneven distribution of charges and an induced flow near the vicinity of the surface. Simulations were performed to examine the effect of various geometrical parameters on the velocity flow profile and maximum velocity.
