This paper presents the design of fuzzy logic controllers (FLCs) for nonlinear systems with guaranteed closed-loop stability and its application on combining controllers. The design is based on heuristic fuzzy rules. Although each rule in the FLC refers to a stable closed-loop subsystem, the overall system stability cannot be guaranteed when all these rules are applied together. In this paper, it is proved that if each subsystem is stable in the sense of Lyapunov (ISL) under a common Lyapunov function, the overall system is also stable ISL. Since no fuzzy plant model is involved, the number of subsystems generated is relatively small, and the common Lyapunov function can be found more easily. To probe further, an application of this design approach to an inverted pendulum system that combines a sliding-mode controller (SMC) and a state feedback controller (SFC) is reported. Each rule in this FLC has an SMC or an SFC in the consequent part. The role of the FLC is to schedule the final control under different antecedents. The stability of the whole system is guaranteed by the proposed design approach. More importantly, the controller thus designed can keep the advantages and remove the disadvantages of the two conventional controllers
