Averaging of fast switching systems is an effective technique used in many engineering applications. Practical stability and control design for a nonsmooth switched system can be inferred by analyzing the smooth averaged system. In this paper we overview the few formal approaches proposed in the literature to deal with the averaging of nonsmooth systems.(More)
Switched models provide a suitable framework for many practical control systems. At a certain level of abstraction smooth models obtained by averaging switched models are able to capture most relevant properties of the system behavior. Stability and control design for a nonsmooth switched system can be inferred by analyzing the smooth averaged system. In(More)
The major motivation of the averaging technique for switched systems is the construction of a smooth average system whose state trajectory approximates in some sense the state trajectory of the switched system. Averaging of dynamic systems represented by switched ordinary differential equations (ODEs) has been widely analyzed in the literature. The(More)
