Abstract : The bounded-input control of a linear, time-invariant system with quadratic performance index is discussed from the standpoint of simple implementation. In particular the admissible control is constrained to be a linear function of the states fed back through a saturating amplifier. The resulting controlled system not only exhibits the usual maximum-effort made of operation, but also the terminal singular behavior where linear control is in evidence. (Author)
