An approach to developing active control strategies for high Reynolds number flows with trapped vortices is presented. The problem considered is the stabilisation of the vortex in a special cavity on the airfoil using suction as an actuator. The flow dynamics are modelled by the parallel discrete vortex method capable of handling wall irregularities, arbitrary boundary conditions, and turbulence. System identification is performed based on the open-loop analysis with the constant flow rate suction. Feedback control results show that a properly designed linear PI controller prevents the large-scale vortex shedding from the cavity region and reduces considerably flow unsteadiness in the downstream boundary layer.
