Mathematical models are an approximate of physical systems and design procedures are only complete when modeling errors have been quantified. Uncertainties are incorporated in design procedure to compensate such discrepancies and to add robustness. This paper investigates the design problem of parameter-dependent switched observers for polytopic uncertain switched systems. State-space model is considered subject to time-varying uncertainties, and designated observer gains ensuring stability of overall system are also parameter-dependent. Synthesis procedure is demonstrated by employing ℋ∞ performance criteria which has become a standard for robust system design against external disturbances. This investigation is carried out in the framework of finite-time stability (FTS) and finite-time boundedness (FTB) which is the focus of researchers recently because of its apparent practical significance, especially after the emergent utilization of linear matrix inequalities.
