This paper addresses the antiwindup problem for linear systems equipped with the zero-phase repetitive controller (ZPRC). The antiwindup compensator is designed using a coprime factorization technique and conditions to characterize the sets of admissible references and disturbances are proposed. A numerical example illustrates the application and potentialities of the proposed methodology.
