We study tracking performance limitation problems. Two issues are addressed concerning how earlier results developed elsewhere may be extended to more general classes of reference signals, and how tracking performance may be further improved beyond that offered by feedback control. Toward these issues we consider exponentially increasing reference inputs and examine the use of preview control for tracking. Using an optimal interpolation approach, we develop analytical expressions and a conceptual insight which will aid in the understanding of these issues. To this effect, we derive explicit expressions for the optimal tracking error, either as exact solutions or bounds. It is found that for the exponential signals the earlier results can be directly extended, and similar conclusive statements can be drawn. It is also shown that, in general, preview can be used to advantage for improving tracking performance, especially in dealing with the effect resulted from plant nonminimum phase zeros
