Distributed anti-windup approach for consensus tracking of second-order multi-agent systems with input saturation Academic Article uri icon


  • 2019 Elsevier B.V. In this paper, we study the global consensus tracking problem for second-order multi-agent systems with input saturation under general directed communication graphs. A controller design approach based on distributed anti-windup control is proposed to handle the input saturation constraint. We generalize the traditional two step anti-windup control methodology to multi-agent systems and solve the input constrained consensus tracking problem based on distributed anti-windup compensator design. Some simulation examples are provided to illustrate the effectiveness of the proposed control strategy.
