While the potential for the use of synthetic jet actuators to achieve flow control has been noted for some time, most of such flow control studies have been empirical or experimental in nature. Several technical issues must be resolved to achieve rigorous, model-based, closed-loop control methodologies for this class of actuators. The goal of this paper is consequently two-fold. First, we seek to derive and evaluate model order reduction methods based on proper orthogonal decomposition that are suitable for synthetic jet actuators. Second, we seek to derive rigorously stable feedback control laws for the derived reduced order models. The realizability of the control strategies is discussed, and a numerical study of the effectiveness of the reduced order models for two-dimensional flow near the jet exit is summarized.
