The issue of sliding-mode control (SMC) design is studied for a class of nonlinear semi-Markovian switching systems (S-MSSs) via T-S fuzzy approach. Compared with previous literature, novel integral sliding-mode surfaces (ISMSs) are developed to depend on the designed controller gains and projection matrices. The aim of this work is to design an appropriate fuzzy SMC law under complex stochastic semi-Markovian switching process. For this purpose, the novel ISMSs are developed under the T-S fuzzy modeling framework. Then, based on the weak infinitesimal operator theory, sufficient conditions are given for stochastic stability criteria relying on the sojourn-time. Furthermore, an appropriate fuzzy SMC law is proposed to drive the state signals onto the predefined fuzzy manifold. Finally, an electric circuit model illustrates the effectiveness of the theoretical findings.
