In this paper, we present a new decentralized H∞ control for interconnected systems, the interconnected system consists of several subsystems. The proposed approach based on Lyapunov functional and a H∞ criterion, employed to reduce the effect of interconnections between subsystems. In the first, we study the stability of the global system in closed loop using a criterion H∞, the stability conditions are presented in terms of LMI. In the second, to improve this approach, a Finsler’s lemma is used for the stability analysis by LMIs. Some sufficient conditions, ensuring all the closed-loop stability are supplied in terms of Linear Matrix Inequalities (LMIs), and the new feedback gain matrix of each local controller is obtained by solving the LMIs. Finally, the practice examples are given to illustrate the efficiency of the present method.
