Abstract : "This paper presents a novel interpretation of the invariance condition of mismatched uncertain largescale
systems in which uncertainties and interconnections do not satisfy the conventional invariance condition. A
new sliding mode that consists of two sets of switching surfaces is proposed. In every subsystem, uncertainties
and interconnections are all separated into matched and mismatched components to reduce the conservatism. As
a result, new invariance conditions are derived such that each subsystem in the new sliding mode is completely
invariant to both uncertainties and interconnections. We also show that these conditions are not only necessary
but also sufficient. In addition, sufficient conditions are derived such that the equivalent reduced-order system in
the new sliding mode is asymptotically stable within the framework of linear matrix inequalities. A decentralized
controller is synthesized to assure stability of the overall system. Finally, illustrative example is given to show the
effectiveness of the proposed approach."
