A novel dual-actuated dynamic mirror actuator (DMA) is presented for laser beam steering. The DMA is driven by a pair of piezoelectric stack actuaors (PESAs). The piezoelectric stacks are modeled using a linear model and five variations of constitutive models from literature. The resulting DMA models are simulated. While the constitutive models capture some higher order dynamics, the linear model provides the best combination of accuracy to experimental data and simplicty of model between DC and the first natural frequency of the DMA. For control of the DMA up to the first natural frequency of the DMA, a linear model should be adequate.
