This paper addresses the design of H∞state feedback controllers for a class of nonlinear time-varying delay systems. The interesting features here are that the system in consideration is nonautonomous with fast-varying delays, the delay is also involved in the observation output, and the controllers to be designed satisfy some exponential stability constraints on the closed-loop poles. By using the proposed Lyapunov functional approach, neither a controllability assumption nor a bound restriction on nonlinear perturbations is required to obtain new sufficient conditions for the H∞control. The conditions are derived in terms of a solution to the standard Riccati differential equations, which allows for simultaneous computation of the two bounds that characterize the stability rate of the solution. © Springer Science+Business Media, LLC 2009.
