Abstract : "This article investigates the robustness of switched multiple equilibrium points systems (SMEPSs) with
unstable subsystems. Each subsystem has a unique equilibrium point that is different from all equilibrium points
of the other subsystems. Unlike the most commonly used Lyapunov function method, the analytical solutions and
numerical solutions are calculated to analyze the boundedness of the solutions for perturbation discrete-time and
continuons-time SMEPSs, respectively. The given perturbation systems have good robustness if the ratio of total
dwell time of unstable subsystems and the total dwell time of stable subsystems is less than or equal to a constant.
A numerical example is employed to validate the correctness of the theoretical results."
