This paper is concerned with the problem of designing switched state feedback H infin controllers for discrete-time Takagi-Sugeno (T-S) fuzzy systems. New types of state feedback controllers, namely, switched parallel distributed compensation (PDC) controllers, are proposed, which are switched based on the values of membership functions. Switched quadratic Lyapunov functions are exploited to derive a new method for designing switched PDC controllers to guarantee the stability and H infin performances of closed-loop nonlinear systems. The design conditions are given in terms of solvability of a set of linear matrix inequalities. It is shown that the new method provides better or at least the same results of the existing design methods via the pure PDC scheme with a quadratic Lyapunov function or switched constant controller gain scheme. Numerical examples are given to illustrate the effectiveness of the proposed method.
