#### Abstract

The problem of bounded-input bounded-output (BIBO) stability is investigated for a class of delay switched systems with mixed time-varying discrete and constant neutral delays and nonlinear perturbation. Based on the Lyapunov-Krasovskii functional theory, new BIBO stabilization criteria are established in terms of delay-dependent linear matrix inequalities. The numerical simulation is carried out to demonstrate the effectiveness of the results obtained in the paper.

#### 1. Introduction

Time delay is a source of instability and poor performance and appears in many dynamic systems, for example, biological systems, chemical systems, metallurgical processing systems, nuclear reactor systems, and electrical networks [1]. Since the existence of time delays may lead to oscillation, divergence, or instability, considerable effort has been devoted to this area. As an important system performance index, BIBO stability means that any bounded input yields a bounded output and can be considered in many aspects, such as the free system dynamics, the basic single or double loop modulators, and the issues connected with bilinear input/output maps. Consequently, bounded-input bounded-output (BIBO) stability analysis of dynamical systems has attracted many scholars’ attention. For instance, in [2], BIBO stability criterion is derived for a three-dimensional fuzzy two-term control system, in [3], the problem on BIBO stabilization for a system with nonlinear perturbations is studied by discussing the existence of the positive definite solution to an auxiliary algebraic Riccati matrix equation, in [4], based on linear matrix inequality techniques, the stabilization criterion for uncertain time-delay system is presented to guarantee that bounded input can lead to bounded output, and in [5], BIBO stability for feedback control systems with time delay is studied through investigating the boundedness of the solutions for a class of nonlinear Volterra integral equations.

Recently, switched system becomes a research hotspot. Its motivation comes from the fact that many practical systems are inherently multimodal and the fact that some of intelligent control methods are based on the idea of switching between different controllers. Up till now, many investigations about stability of multiform switched systems have been carried out; see, for instance, [6–19] and references therein. Hence, it is our intention in this paper to tackle such an important yet challenging problem for BIBO stability analysis of delay switched systems. In addition, perturbations [20–26] and time delays [27–29] exist in many kinds of systems, and this makes the practical control problem complicated and has received much attention from scholars. Hence, in this paper, the BIBO stability for delay switched system with mixed time-varying discrete and constant neutral delays and nonlinear perturbation is concerned, and some original BIBO stability criteria are established in terms of linear matrix inequalities (LMIs). Finally, some simulation results are given to illustrate the effectiveness of our results. The main contributions of the paper are of two folds: a delay-dependent technique is applied successfully into the analysis results process; a Lyapunov-Krasovskii functional is constructed to derive a new form of the bounded real lemma (BRL) for the system under consideration.

The remainder of this paper is organized as follows. The model under consideration and some preliminaries are provided in Section 2. Section 3 presents the results on stability analysis. Section 4 gives an illustrative example. At last we conclude the paper in Section 5.

#### 2. Model Description and Preliminaries

First, consider the following delay switched system with nonlinear perturbation: where is the state vector, is the neutral delay, is the time-varying discrete delay, is the initial condition, is the switching signal, is the control input, is the system output, is the reference input, and is the nonlinear time-varying perturbation, which satisfies , where is a positive scalar.

Model (1) can be represented as follows: In this paper, the following well-known lemmas and definitions are needed.

#### 3. Main Results

In this section, we will establish some BIBO stability criteria using Lyapunov-Krasovskii functional theory and linear matrix inequalities.

Therefore, switched system (1) is BIBO stable. This completes the proof.

#### 4. Simulation Results

As an example, let us consider system (1) with the following parameters:

*Remark 7. *When the BIBO parameter and the constant parameter are given, the upper bound of time delay of system (1) can be determined by solving the following optimization problem:

Now we consider the influence of parameters *k* and on the maximal allowable delay in Tables 1 and 2.

*Remark 8. *From Tables 1 and 2, it can be seen that the maximal allowable delay decreases with the rise of the parameter *k* and increases as the parameter is reduced.

Then, we carry out some numerical simulation to verify the proposed methodology. The numerical simulation is with initial value , and following parameters The switching signals are produced randomly with switching interval 0.2 seconds.

*Remark 9. * Figure 1 depicts the time response of system reference input variable , and Figure 2 depicts the time response of switching signals. denotes the switching signal added to the system for the first time, and denotes the switching signal added to the system for the second time; Figure 3 depicts the time response of system output variable , and Figure 4 depicts the time response of system output variable . The solid line denotes the output variable of the switched system with the switching signal , and the dashed line denotes the output variable of the switched system with the switching signal . From the figures it can be seen that the system output jitters in a range with a given bounded input after a period of time, which means that the system is BIBO stable and demonstrates the effectiveness of our theoretical results.

#### 5. Conclusions

We have studied bounded-input bounded-output stability for a class of delay switched systems with nonlinear perturbation. Based on the Lyapunov-Krasovskii functional theory, new BIBO stabilization criteria were established in terms of delay-dependent linear matrix inequalities. Some numerical simulations have been conducted to demonstrate the effectiveness of the theoretical results obtained in this paper. Future work will investigate fault detection for delay switched systems.
