If the pressure support is limited than flow limitation can drive the pressure all the way to 20cm and still not be resolved.

I think we are confusing each other, and perhaps ourselves. 
Pressure treats flow limitations, H, OA, and all things related to obstruction.  Whether the increased pressure is needed on inhalation or exhalation can vary.  
The OP's machine controls inhalation pressure (within a prescribed range).  The exhalation pressure is lower, depending on the EPR setting.

This exchange sounds suspiciously familiar. For what it's worth here's a reference for Flow limitation.  http://www.apneaboard.com/wiki/index.php...Limitation

Now I'll move on.
Very familiar with the info.  
What he says is that IF the flow limitation are due to expiration pressure being too low and IF you can't handle having a higher inspiration pressure because it causes arousals, then you should increase the expiration pressure by decreasing EPR. 

Keep moving.
