The paper presents the developed electromechanical model of RR-type MEMS gyro, which takes into consideration nonlinear effects and discrepancy of characteristics of the actuator and angular sensor. The reasons of resonance peaks at subfrequencies during the platform vibrations are analyzed, and performance requirements for the components of control system are formulated.
