We present the global-in-time existence of strong solutions and its large-time behavior for the Kuramoto-Sakaguchi equation with inertia. The equation describes the evolution of the probability density function for a large ensemble of Kuramoto oscillators under the effects of inertia and stochastic noises. We consider a perturbative framework around the equilibrium, which is a Maxwellian type, and use the classical energy method together with our careful analysis on the macro-micro decomposition. We establish the global-in-time existence and uniqueness of strong solutions when the initial data are sufficiently regular, not necessarily close to the equilibrium, and the noise strength is also large enough. For the large-time behavior, we show the exponential decay of solutions towards the equilibrium under the same assumptions as those for the global regularity of solutions.
