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

Traces the history of anti-windup research through an extensive annotated bibliography
Luca Zaccarian is associate professor of control engineering at the University of Rome, Tor Vergata. Andrew R. Teel is a professor in the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department at the University of California, Santa Barbara.
"This book goes a long way toward providing comprehensive coverage of systematic procedures for anti-windup synthesis, emphasizing algorithmic issues and modern design techniques. A valuable resource for researchers and practitioners, it should interest a broad audience in control engineering, as well as in other disciplines, such as mechanical and chemical engineering."--Prodromos Daoutidis, University of Minnesota
