## Abstract

We are developing methods to predict the dynamics of the flow field above a NACA-4412 airfoil using real-time measurements of the pressure from the surface of the airfoil only. Through Proper Orthogonal Decomposition (POD) and modified Linear Stochastic Measurement (mLSM) low-dimensional techniques (Lumley (1967), Adrian (1975), Taylor & Glauser (2004)) these pressure measurements are coupled to Particle Image Velocimetry (PIV) data of the flow to estimate the time dependent coefficients describing the flow. Based on a least-squares technique applied to the POD spatial modes, we obtain a system of ODEs that are solved to get the time-evolution of the POD coefficients, whereby an estimate of the evolution equation of the flow is obtained. This low-dimensional estimated plant will be used to explore different Proportional, Integral & Derivative (PID) control parameters and will enable us to implement a controller of the flow state above the airfoil using leading-edge zero net-mass flow actuators while pitching the airfoil.
