This chapter considers the vibration control problem of a flexible satellite with the restricted input. Previous studies have considered the stability problem under the condition of input saturation [2, 3, 4, 9], which are based on nested saturated input functions. Some researchers present anti-windup controllers for linear system using linear matrix inequalities (LMI) [6, 8]. A general framework for the analysis and control of parabolic partial differential equations (PDE) systems with input constraints is developed in [5]. In [7], boundary output feedback control of a flexible string system with input saturation is proposed. In [1], a simple controller with smooth hyperbolic function for achieving trajectory tracking under the condition of restricted input is presented.
