Effect of electric field on two-dimensional low Reynolds air flow around an airfoil and separation control at the end of the airfoil is numerically investigated. The finite volume method is utilized to solve electric current and Poisson's equations and the outcome is considered as a source term in the momentum equations. The results demonstrate that the separation at the end of the airfoil can be controlled by imposing electrohydrodynamic (EHD) effect.
