The paper presents new conditions suitable in design of the stabilizing state controller for a class of continuous-time nonlinear systems, which are representable by pairwise distributable Takagi-Sugeno models. Taking into account the affine properties of the TS model structure and applying the pairwise subsystems fuzzy control scheme relating to the parallel distributed output compensators, the extended bounded real lemma form and the sufficient design conditions for pairwise decentralized control are outlined in terms of linear matrix inequalities. The proposed procedure decouples the Lyapunov matrix and the system parameter matrices in the LMIs and, using free tuning parameter, provides the way to obtain global stability of such large-scale TS systems and optimizes subsystems interaction norm bounds.
