Abstract: Conventionally, the variable structure control is investigated in the time domain. However, this paper xplore the properties of robust stability for variable structure control in frequency domain. Here, it can be shown that the variable structure control can be transformed into a Lur’e problem. If the uncertainties of system and input matrices satisfy the “matching conditions”, then the zero dynamics of sliding surface will not changed; For robust stability, it can be shown that from frequency domain point of view, the variable structure control possesses phase margin and infinity gain margin. With this point of view, the sliding mode control reveals superior robust properties. Finally, according to circle criterion, a formula is presented that with suitable boundary layer, the sliding mode control can achieve absolute stability of overall system.
