Abstract

In this paper we discuss the controller design of a PZT-actuated suspension dual-stage servo system in hard disk drives. The proposed control structure includes an active vibration damping control loop and a track-following control loop. The vibration damping control loop, which runs at a faster rate than the track-following control loop, utilizes a PZT element on a PZT-actuated suspension as a vibration sensor to damp the resonance modes of the voice coil motor (VCM) and the PZT actuator. The vibration damping controller is designed using Kalman filter based state feedback control techniques. A simple dual-stage track-following controller is designed, based on the damped actuator model, using the sensitivity function decoupling design method. Simulation and experimental results are presented to demonstrate the benefits of this control scheme in expanding servo control bandwidth and suppressing airflow excited structural vibrations.
