Asynchronous switching differing from asynchronous consensus may hinder the system to reach a consensus. This receives very limited attention, especially when the multi-agent systems have a controller fault. In order to analyze the consensus in this situation, this paper studies the consensus of the second-order multi-agent systems under asynchronous switching with a controller fault. We convert the consensus problems under asynchronous switching into stability problems and obtain important results for consensus with the aid of linear matrix inequalities. An example is given to illustrate the effect of asynchronous switching on the consensus, and to validate the analytical results in this paper.
