Abstract
This paper studies the exponential stabilization problem for discrete-time switched linear systems based on a control-Lyapunov
function approach. It is proved that a switched linear system is exponentially stabilizable if and only if there exists a piecewise
quadratic control-Lyapunov function. Such a converse control-Lyapunov function theorem justifies many of the earlier synthesis
methods that have adopted piecewise-quadratic Lyapunov functions for convenience or heuristic reasons. In addition, it is also
proved that if a switched linear system is exponentially stabilizable, then it must be stabilizable by a stationary suboptimal
policy of a related switched LQR problem. Motivated by some recent results of the switched LQR problem, an efficient
algorithm is proposed, which is guaranteed to yield a control-Lyapunov function and a stabilizing policy whenever the system
is exponentially stabilizable.
Key words: Switched systems, Piecewise quadratic Lyapunov functions, Switching stabilization, Optimal control,
Control-Lyapunov functions.
