Abstract

Presented in this paper is the influence of actuator rate and output saturation on the regulating capability of an unstable system subjected to an external step disturbance. This influence is characterized by bounds on the allowable disturbance step size which is an explicit function of the actuator limitations and the degree of instability. The class of systems addressed include single input regulating systems whose unstable parts are any combination of real and unique, and/or real and repeated. The transient condition developed guarantees that each state of the Jordan form corresponding to an unstable mode is BIBO stable.
