A new fuzzy modeling based on fuzzy linear fractional transformations model is introduced. This new representation is shown to be a flexible tool for handling complicated nonlinear models. Particularly, the new fuzzy model provides an efficient and tractable way to handle the output feedback parallel distributed compensation problem. We demonstrate that this problem can be given a linear matrix inequality characterization and hence is immediately solvable through available semidefinite programming codes. The capabilities of the new fuzzy modeling is illustrated through numerical examples.
