This paper studies the problem of output regulation for a class of switched nonlinear systems. Sufficient conditions for the problem to be solved are presented in terms of the average dwell-time scheme. These conditions are obtained based on full information feedback laws and error feedback laws, respectively. The results extend the output regulation theory for non-switched nonlinear systems to switched nonlinear systems. A simulation example also shows the validity of the results.Copyright © 2011 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.
