Actuator saturation is ubiquitous in engineering systems. Anti-windup approach to dealing with actuator saturation has been receiving considerable attention from both the industry and the academic community during the past decades. Professor Zongli Lin and his student Xiongjun Wu developed a new anti-windup design paradigm that is capable of achieving significantly improved performances of the resulting closed-loop system. Their work, entitled "Design of multiple anti-windup loops for...

A black box can referred to as almost anything from a transistor to an algorithm to a human mind. The black box is a device, system, or object which can be view in terms of its input, output, and transfer characteristics without any knowledge of its internal workings. The opposite is a system where the inner components or logic are available for inspection which is sometimes known as a white box, a glass box, or a clear box. The term "black box" came into the English language around 1945....
