In this paper, a novel anti-windup dynamic output compensator is developed to deal with the robust H infin output feedback control problem of nonlinear processes with amplitude and rate actuator saturations and external disturbances. Via fuzzy modeling of nonlinear systems, the proposed piecewise fuzzy anti-windup dynamic output feedback controller is designed based on piecewise quadratic Lyapunov functions. It is shown that with sector conditions, robust output feedback stabilization of an input-constrained nonlinear process can be formulated as a convex optimization problem subject to linear matrix inequalities. Simulation study on a strongly nonlinear continuously stirred tank reactor (CSTR) benchmark plant is given to show the performance of the proposed anti-windup dynamic compensator.
