Stability and H Performance Analysis of Switched Stochastic Neutral Systems

Short Paper


This paper is concerned with the problems of stability and H performance for a class of switched stochastic neutral delay systems. By applying the average dwell time method, sufficient condition is first derived to guarantee the mean-square exponential stability of the switched stochastic neutral system. Then, the condition on a weighted H performance is proposed. The corresponding results are all formulated in terms of linear matrix inequalities (LMIs). Finally, a numerical example is provided to illustrate the effectiveness of the proposed approach.
