Title

Anti-Windup Control of Second-Order Plants with Saturation Nonlinearity

Abstract

All real-world control systems have saturation nonlinearity in final control elements (including actuators). When controllers involve integral action, reset windup can cause instability as well as make system performance unsatisfactory. Based on the describing function method and the generalized Popov criterion, this paper presents analysis of the global stability of a control system having a saturating second-order plant, both with and without using a deadbeat limiting scheme to constrain its controller output. The improvement of system performance by incorporating the anti-windup feature in the controller is illustrated by computer simulations.
