Various physical limitations which intrinsically exist in the manipulator control system, for example kinematic limits and torque limit, cause some undesirable effects. Specifically, when one or more actuators are saturated the expected control performance can not be anticipated and in some cases it induces instability of the system. The effect of torque limit, especially for redundant manipulators, is studied in this article, and an analytic method to reconstruct the control input using the redundancy is proposed based on the kinematically decomposed modeling of redundant manipulators. It results to no degradation of the output motion closed-loop dynamics at the cost of the least degradation of the null motion closed-loop dynamics. Numerical simulations help to verify the advantages of the proposed scheme.
