Abstract: Dynamic analysis of the optical–mechanical structure based on the linear state space expression is performed for a three-point flexural mount lightweight space mirror with a diameter of ϕ740 mm. Using linear structure dynamics and linear state space theories, the state space model of the mirror assembly is established based on modal information. The DC gain method is used to reduce modes and a frequency response analysis of the reduced modes is performed to obtain the frequency domain transfer function between the excitation input and response output points and determine the contribution of each mode to the total frequency response. The frequency response curve is plotted. A mechanical vibration test is performed to verify the accuracy and rationality of simulation analysis. The dynamic analysis method based on state space theory provides a new method of investigating optical and mechanical structures, which can help efficiently and accurately analyze the frequency response characteristics of complex linear systems.
