In this study, an adaptive fuzzy decentralized dynamic surface control (DSC) problem is investigated for switched large-scale nonlinear systems with deferred asymmetric and time-varying full-state constraints. Due to the existence of additional general nonlinearities, complicated output interconnections, and full-state constraints, it is difficult to address the above control problem using existing methods. Fuzzy-logic systems are, therefore, utilized to approximate the unknown nonlinear functions, and the DSC technique is adopted to overcome the 'curse of dimensionality' problem. A novel fuzzy adaptive decentralized controller design is presented using the proposed convex combination technique. Furthermore, it is proven that under the proposed controller and state-dependent switching law, all states of the closed-loop system are bounded and deferred asymmetric, and the time-varying full-state constraints are strictly obeyed. The simulation results are presented to demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed method.
