Time-resolved Reynolds-Averaged Navier-Stokes simulations of a 3D stator compressor cascade are performed. At the design point of the airfoil under investigation, pronounced secondary flow effects are observed. Strong corner vortices emerge from the casing walls and the flow separates from the blade suction side towards the trailing edge. Transition from laminar to turbulent flow occurs within a laminar separation bubble. Using a commercial CFD software, the influence of the spatial resolution is investigated by means of a spanwise coarsening and refinement of the created mesh. Zero net mass flux synthetic jet actuation is used to control the separated regions. The work presents a variation of the temporal discretization and an analysis of the driving parameters of the actuation.
