Abstract : The stability analysis and controller design of stochastic systems have become much more important because the stochastic behaviors usually exist in practical nonlinear systems. In this paper, a robust fuzzy controller design approach is proposed with multiple constraints, including state variance constraints, output variance constraints, and pole placement constraints. At first, nonlinear systems are expressed as the Takagi-Sugeno fuzzy model, and the parallel distributed compensation method is applied to design the robust fuzzy controllers. Next, considering the stability analysis and the performance constraints of perturbed Takagi-Sugeno fuzzy models, Lyapunov conditions are developed based on covariance control theory, pole placement theory and robust control theory. By constructing the stability conditions with multiple constraints, the proposed fuzzy control problem can be effectively transferred into the linear matrix inequality problem. It can be solved by the convex optimal programming algorithm. At last, a nonlinear ship steering system is selected to verify the effectiveness and applicability of the proposed robust fuzzy controller design method.
