Dwell-Time-Based Standard H-infinity Control of Switched Systems Without Requiring Internal Stability of Subsystems
This paper investigates standard H-infinity control of switched systems via dwell-time switchings without posing any internal stability requirements on subsystems of the switched systems. First, a sufficient condition is formed by specifying lower and upper bounds of the dwell time, constraining upper bound of derivative of a Lyapunov function of the active subsystem, and forcing the Lyapunov function values of the overall switched system to decrease at switching times to achieve standard H-infinity control of unforced switched linear systems. Then, in the same framework of the dwell time, sufficient conditions are given for that of the corresponding forced switched linear systems by further designing state feedback controllers. Finally, numerical examples are provided to demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed results.
