The null controllable set of a system is the largest set of states that can be controlled to the origin. Control systems that have a region of attraction equal to the null controllable set are said to be maximally controllable closed-loop systems. In the case of open-loop unstable plants with amplitude constrained control it is well known that the null controllable set does not cover the entire state-space. Further the combination of input constraints and unstable system dynamics results in a set of state constraints which we call implicit constraints. It is shown that the simple inclusion of implicit constraints in a controller formulation results in a controller that achieves maximal controllability for a class of open-loop unstable systems.
