Abstract:

A computer program for automatically damping the polhode motion of the Micro-Electrostatically Suspended Gyro MESG is presented. Test results are presented that demonstrate successful automatic polhode damping on two gyros. The fundamental characteristics of polhode motion of the MESG rotor are summarized. The techniques for monitoring polhode motion using Mass Unbalance Modulation MUM are described. The polhode torquing equation is derived and the spin motor control electronics that implement the torquing equation are described.
