Input saturation is inevitable in many engineering applications. Most existing iterative learning control (ILC) algorithms that can deal with input saturation require that the reference signal is realizable within the saturation bound. For engineering systems without precise models, it is hard to verify this requirement. In this note, a "reference governor" (RG) is introduced and is incorporated with the available ILC algorithms (primary ILC algorithms). The role of the RG is to re-design the reference signal so that the modified reference signal is realizable. Two types of the RG are proposed: one modifies the amplitude of the reference signal and the other modifies the frequency. Our main results provide design guidelines for two RGs. Moreover, a design trade-off between the convergence speed and tracking performance is also discussed. A simple simulation result verifies the effectiveness of the proposed methods.
