An anti-windup-based approach is newly attempted to deal with time-delay control systems with input saturation. Following the anti-windup paradigm, we assume that controllers have been designed beforehand for time-delay control systems based on existing design techniques which will show desirable performance. Then, an additional compensator is designed to provide graceful performance degradation under control input saturation. By taking the difference of controller states in the absence and presence of input saturation as a performance index, a dynamic compensator which minimizes it is derived. The resulting anti-windup compensator is expressed in plant and controller parameters. The proposed method not only provides graceful performance degradation, but also guarantees the stability of the overall systems. Illustrative examples are provided to show the effectiveness of the proposed method. Copyright © 2000 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.
