In this article, we propose a switching anti-windup scheme for the aircraft engine control. The linear engine model with asymmetric saturation is first transformed into a switched system, each subsystem of which is subject to symmetric saturation. A state-dependent switching logic is presented to orchestrate the switching among multiple anti-windup compensators. We then establish the sufficient condition to guarantee the regional stability and <inline-formula xmlns:mml="http://www.w3.org/1998/Math/MathML" xmlns:xlink="http://www.w3.org/1999/xlink"><tex-math notation="LaTeX">$\mathcal {L}_{2}$</tex-math></inline-formula> performance of the resulting closed-loop system. This condition is less conservative since the non-symmetric nature of the saturation nonlinearity can be fully exploited in the control design. Optimization algorithms are further developed for the anti-windup gain design. The theoretical aspect of the proposed method is analyzed rigorously, and the effectiveness is validated through experiments performed on a semi-physical test bed.
