In this paper, we establish new results to the problem of output feedback control design for a class of nonlinear interconnected continuous-time systems subject to input saturation. New schemes based on overlapping design methodology are developed for both static and dynamic output feedback control structures. The theoretical developments are illustrated by numerical simulations of a linearized nuclear power plant model.
