Stability of large-scale systems with saturating actuators. (English) Zbl 0641.93050

Two theorems are provided which give sufficient conditions for the stability of a large-scale minimum or non-minimum phase system with saturating actuators. Each subsystem consists of a linear, time-invariant plant and a controller together with a saturating actuator. An algorithm for synthesizing a stabilizing controller is proposed and the method is illustrated by a detailed example.
