Notably, the gain [K.sub.Lim,AVC] denotes the saturation coefficient
, which limits the output of the PI regulator with a certain range to ensure a smooth operation of the system.
The saturation coefficient
is usually evaluated in conjunction with strength compression when tests are done to determine commercial product durability.
The resulting polynomial saturation coefficients
[a.sub.s]([I.sub.f]) and [b.sub.s]([I.sub.f]), estimated as explained above, are given in Table 4.
