Technical Paper


To control microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) gyroscope axis, we propose and investigate a new robust sliding mode controller (NRSMC). The sliding surface in the phase space converges to the equilibrium point within a finite period from any initial state. However, the main drawback of this control system is the chattering phenomenon, which is undesirable for the MEMS system. To solve this problem, we suggest a novel hybrid control system which improves trajectory tracking and eliminates the chattering. The dynamic stability of NRSMC against external disturbances is proved by applying the Lyapunov theory. The effectiveness of the proposed control method is verified by numerical simulation with a random noise applied to demonstrate the robustness of the proposed control system.
