A delay partitioning approach is introduced to solve problems of passivity and passification for continuous T-S fuzzy system with time delay. Our aim is to design a state feedback controller such that the resulting closed system is passive. By constructing a Lyapunov-Krasovskii functional, delay-dependent passivity/passification performance conditions are formulated in terms of linear matrix inequalities (LMIs). Finally, numerical examples are used to illustrate the effectiveness of the proposed approaches which can further reduce conservatism and become more obvious with partitioning getting thinner.
