The output constraints widely exist in the physical systems and severely affect the performance of the closed-loop system. This paper considers the second-order sliding mode controller design subject to an output constraint. By constructing a new barrier Lyapunov function and applying the technique of adding a power integrator, a novel second-order sliding mode control algorithm, which can be used to deal with the output constraint problem, has been developed. The proposed sliding mode algorithm enables the output variable not to violate the boundary of the constraint region. Meanwhile, it has been shown that under the output constraint the sliding variable can still be stabilized to zero in a finite time. Finally, an academic example is given to verify the feasibility of the proposed second-order sliding mode algorithm.
