    This paper presents a full-order dynamic anti-windup compensation design scheme for stable LTI systems using a Riccati inequality based approach. The scheme utilizes the Weston-Postlethwaite's generalized anti-windup configuration and applies right coprime factorization of the plant transfer function matrix to obtain a linear conditioning scheme. The proposed anti-windup scheme ensures the internal stability of the closed-loop control system in presence of actuator saturation and also reduces the performance degradation caused by the saturation phenomena. The Riccati inequality based approach offers a simple and straightforward anti-windup compensator design method which is independent of the design of nominal controller. The effectiveness of the proposed technique is demonstrated through a MIMO example.
