Gain-scheduled, model-based anti-windup for LPV systems
The aim of this paper is to show that a recently proposed technique for anti-windup control of exponentially unstable plants can be easily extended to solve the corresponding robust anti-windup problem for linear parameter varying systems, for which the time varying parameters are measured online. The proposed technique is minimally conservative with respect to the size of the resulting operating region (which coincides, up to an arbitrarily small quantity, with the largest set on which asymptotic stability can be guaranteed for the considered plant with the given saturation level and uncertainty characteristics), and is not limited to plants having only small uncertainties or being open-loop stable.
