This paper studies the classical problem of output regulation for linear systems subject to control constraint. The asymptotically regulatable region, the set of all initial conditions of the plant and the exosystem for which output regulation is possible, is characterized in terms of the null controllable region of the antistable subsystem of the plant. Continuous output regulation laws, of both state feedback type and error feedback type, are constructed from a given stabilizing state

It is shown that a stabilizing feedback law that achieves a larger domain of attraction leads to a feedback law that achieves output regulation on a larger subset of the asymptotically regulatable region. A feedback law that achieves global stabilization on the asymptotically null controllable region leads to a feedback law that achieves output regulation on the entire asymptotically regulatable region.
