### Abstract

In this paper, we study several qualitative properties for a class of switched systems composed of several subsystems, where each subsystem's vector field is composed of a linear time-invariant part and a nonlinear norm-bounded perturbation part. It is assumed that the linear subsystem matrices are commutative pairwise, and there exists a linear convex stable combination of unstable linear subsystem matrices. First, in the case of no perturbations, we propose a switching law under which the entire switched system is globally exponentially stable. In the switching law, Hurwitz stable sub-systems (if exist) are activated arbitrarily while unstable ones are activated in sequence with their duration time periods satisfying a specified ratio. Secondly, under the same switching law, we analyze qualitative property of the switched system in the case where nonlinear norm-bounded perturbations exist. Some numerical examples are given in the paper to demonstrate the results.
