Abstract: This paper considers the control problem of a class of uncertain switched systems deﬁned on polyhedral sets known as piecewise linear systems where, instead of the conventional Caratheodory solutions, Filippov solutions are studied. In other words, in contrast to the previous studies, solutions with inﬁnite switching in ﬁnite time along the facets and on faces of arbitrary dimensions are also taken into account. Firstly, established upon previous studies, a set of linear matrix inequalities are brought forward which determines the asymptotic stability of piecewise linear systems with Filippov solutions. Subsequently, bilinear matrix inequality conditions for synthesizing a robust controller with a guaranteed H1 performance are presented. Furthermore, these results has been generalized to the case of piecewise afﬁne systems. Finally, a V–K iteration algorithm is proposed to deal with the aforementioned bilinear matrix inequalities. The validity of the proposed method is veriﬁed through the analysis of two simulation examples.
