This note uses quadratic surface Lyapunov functions (SuLFs) to efficiently check if a double integrator in feedback with a saturation nonlinearity has L -gain less than > 0. We show that for many such systems, the L -gain is nonconservative in the sense that this is approximately equal to the lower bound obtained by replacing the saturation with a constant gain of 1. These results allow the use of classical analysis tools like -analysis or integral quadratic constraints to analyze systems with double integrators and saturations, including servo systems like some mechanical systems, satellites, hard disks, compact disk players, etc. [less ▲]

Many systems like servo systems, satellites, harddisks, and CD players, can be modeled as linear systems with a single integrator and a saturation. Many times, such systems are controlled with a PI controller resulting in a feedback interconnection with a double integrator and a saturation. In this paper, we propose a loop transformation that results in bounded operators so that classical analysis tools like mu􀀀-analysis or IQCs can be applied. In order to show boundedness of all operators, we use quadratic surface Lyapunov functions to efficiently check if a double integrator in feedback with a saturation nonlinearity has L2 􀀀-gain less than gamma > 0 􀀀. We show that for many of such systems, the L2 􀀀-gain is non-conservative in the sense that this is approximately equal to the lower bound obtained by replacing the saturation with a constant gain of .
