A new simple design of multiple dielectric barrier discharge (DBD) actuator intended for gas §ow acceleration in thin boundary layer on lengthy aerodynamic surface is proposed. The operability of the considered multi-DBD-actuator is con¦rmed experimentally. Proposed method of measurements of the electric power consumed by the actuator permits to estimate this value simply and with acceptable accuracy. The thrust generated by DBD-actuator and thrust-to-power relation were estimated owing to pressure probe measurements of the induced §ow velocity.
