The active flow control, which can adapt to variation of flow velocity and/or direction, is an effective technique to achieve drag reduction. The present study has investigated a separated shear layer and established two control systems; the system reduces drag force and lift force by controlling the separated shear layer to reattachment for variation of flow velocity and /or direction. The adaptive control system to the variation of flow velocity was constructed by using a hot wire anemometer as a sensor to detect flow separation. The system to flow direction was constructed by using pressure transducers as a sensor to estimate drag force and lift force. The extremum-seeking control was introduced as a controller of the both systems. It is indicated from the experimental results that adaptive drag/lift control system to various flow velocity ranging from 3 to 7 m/s and various flow direction ranging from 0 to 30 deg. was established.
