Analysis of a Novel MEMs Gyroscope Actuated by Parametric Resonance
An analysis of a nonlinear MEMs gyroscope operating under
parametric resonance is presented. Drive frequency and
rotation rate responses are presented, and it is shown that
this gyroscope is robust under frequency mistuning. Solution
structures are developed from a simplified system and
limiting behavior is considered for the complete system. Numerical examples are presented in support of the analytical results. The findings support preliminary experimental results.
