This paper extends the idea of switching T-S fuzzy systems with linear consequent parts to nonlinear ones. Each nonlinear subsystem is exactly represented by a T-S fuzzy system with Lure’ type consequent parts, which allows to model and control wider classes of switching systems and also reduce the computation burden of control synthesis. With the use of a switching fuzzy Lyapunov function, the LMI conditions for asymptotic stability of the system with maximum decay-rate and disturbance attenuation properties under arbitrary switching law are derived. Moreover, several numerical examples are provided to demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed approaches to reduce the computational burden of control synthesis and improving the closed-loop performance of the system.
