This book provides a wide variety of state-space — based numerical algorithms for the synthesis of feedback algorithms for linear systems with input saturation. Specifically, it addresses and solves the anti-windup problem, presenting the objectives and terminology of the problem, the mathematical tools behind anti-windup algorithms, and more than twenty algorithms for anti-windup synthesis, illustrated with examples. Luca Zaccarian and Andrew Teel’s modern method — combining a state-space approach with algorithms generated by solving linear matrix inequalities — treats MIMO and SISO systems with equal ease. The book, aimed at control engineers as well as graduate students, ranges from very simple anti-windup construction to sophisticated anti-windup algorithms for nonlinear systems.

  • Describes the fundamental objectives and principles behind anti-windup synthesis for control systems with actuator saturation

  • Takes a modern, state-space approach to synthesis that applies to both SISO and MIMO systems

  • Presents algorithms as linear matrix inequalities that can be readily solved with widely available software

  • Explains mathematical concepts that motivate synthesis algorithms

  • Uses nonlinear performance curves to quantify performance relative to disturbances of varying magnitudes

  • Includes anti-windup algorithms for a class of Euler-Lagrange nonlinear systems

  • Traces the history of anti-windup research through an extensive annotated bibliography
