For a general time-varying system, we prove that existence of an “Output
Robust Control Lyapunov Function” implies existence of continuous
time-varying feedback stabilizer, which guarantees output asymptotic
stability with respect to the resulting closed-loop system. The main results
of the present work constitute generalizations of a well known result
due to Coron and Rosier [J. Math. Syst. Estim. Control4 (1994) 67–84] concerning
stabilization of autonomous systems by means of time-varying periodic
feedback.
