Abstract
Fast settling, accurate positioning, and a large tilt angle range are important for MEMS mirrors. Here, residual vibration and the pull-in phenomenon—both major problems affecting the performance of an electrostatically actuated mirror—are investigated. Based on the analysis of a nonlinear proportional-derivative (PD) control with parametric uncertainties, a closed-loop feedback control strategy with a combined control scheme is proposed. This method, combining nonlinear PD control and sliding mode control (SMC), not only inherits the virtue of a good dynamic performance from the nonlinear PD control, but also further improves the robustness with SMC for such MEMS mirrors. Furthermore, this method can be convenient when tuning design gains of the controller to obtain a faster error convergence rate. Numerical simulation results show that with this combined control scheme not only the transient response of the MEMS mirror is improved but the influence of parametric uncertainties and external disturbance is also reduced.
