This paper studies the global asymptotic stability of a class of fuzzy systems. It demonstrates the equivalence of stability properties of fuzzy systems and linear time invariant (LTI) switching systems. A necessary condition and a sufficient condition for the stability of such systems are given, and it is shown that under the sufficient condition, a common Lyapunov function exists for the LTI subsystems. A particular case when the system matrices can be simultaneously transformed to normal matrices is shown to correspond to the existence of a common quadratic Lyapunov function. A constructive procedure to check the possibility of simultaneous transformation to normal matrices is provided.
