This paper studies the anti-windup (AW) problem for a certain class of non-linear systems, in which the plant is globally quadratically stable and also partially linearisable by a suitably chosen non-linear feedback control law. Three types of AW compensators are proposed for this type of non-linear system: The first one is a non-linear extension of the popular linear internal model control (IMC) scheme; the second one has a similar structure to the IMC AW compensator yet is of reduced order and has entirely linear dynamics; and the third one is again a linear AW compensator, but can endow the closed-loop system with some sub-optimal performance properties. All three AW compensators are able to provide global exponential stability guarantees for the aforementioned class of systems. This work was inspired by a wave energy application whose dynamics fall into the class of systems studied in this study. Simulation results show the efficacy of the three AW compensators when applied to the wave energy application.

Tipping points in open systems: bifurcation, noise-induced and rate-dependent examples in the climate system Ashwin, Peter; Wieczorek, Sebastian; Vitolo, Renato; Cox, Peter M. (The Royal Society, 2012)Tipping points associated with bifurcations (B-tipping) or induced by noise (N-tipping) are recognized mechanisms that may potentially lead to sudden climate change. We focus here on a novel class of tipping points, where ...
