# LMIs in Control/pages/Switched Systems Pole Placement

**Pole Placement for Switched Systems**

This LMI lets you provide specifications of the switched system closed loop poles. Note that arbitrarily switching between stable systems can lead to instability whilst switching can be done between individually unstable systems to achieve stability.

**The System**Edit

Suppose we were given the switched system such that

where , , , and for any .

modes of operation

**The Data**Edit

In order to properly define the acceptable region of the poles in the complex plane, we need the following pieces of data:

- matrices ,
- desired closed loop pole bound ( )

Having these pieces of information will now help us in formulating the optimization problem.

**The Optimization Problem**Edit

Using the data given above, we can now define our optimization problem. We first have to define the acceptable region in the complex plane that the poles can lie on. Assume that is the complex pole location, then:

**Implementation**Edit

The implementation of this LMI requires Yalmip and Sedumi /MOSEK [1]
