Acceleration adds negative effect to Hemispherical Resonator Gyro (HRG) output; therefore, it is important to model the influence and then make necessary compensations, accordingly. Based on the elastic thin-shell theory under the Kirchhoff-Love assumption, the acceleration influence on HRG forcing system is modeled and then schemes for incentive are suggested. Firstly, the dynamic model of resonator is introduced. Then, inertial load and electrostatic force are calculated to obtain the deformation of resonator. At last, schemes for pickoff incentive are proposed to weaken the effect of acceleration on HRG forcer. The simulation results illustrate that acceleration has negative effects on the exciting confidents of forcers and the proposed scheme can eliminate the acceleration influence on forcing system.
