We present the analysis of a nonlinear control system that is used to excite and maintain a specified amplitude of a lightly damped degree of freedom in the Jet Propulsion Laboratory microgyroscope. One- and two-degree-of-freedom models are considered. The analysis suggests that the perturbing effect of an additional weakly coupled degree of freedom does not quantitatively effect the operation of the automatic gain control.
