Quadratic stability of a class of switched nonlinear systems is studied in this note. We first transform quadratic stability problem into an equivalent nonlinear programming problem. Then, we derive a necessary and sufficient condition for quadratic stability of this class of switched systems by using Karush-Kuhn-Tucker condition for nonlinear programming problems. The necessary and sufficient condition is given in terms of the strict completeness of a certain set of functions on a subset of the state space, which is much easier to check.
