This paper presents the decentralized sampled-data fuzzy observer design techniques for nonlinear interconnected systems, which are assumed to be composed of fuzzy subsystems and unknown interconnections. To design the decentralized fuzzy observer, the estimation error dynamics is obtained, and the performance function is defined. Based on the estimation error dynamics and the performance function, the continuous-time decentralized fuzzy observer is first proposed to minimize the interconnection bound to attenuation degree ratio. In addition, the decentralized sampled-data fuzzy observers are designed by using the approximate discretization and the exact discrete-time design approaches, respectively. Each proposed observer design technique is formulated into the optimal problems with the linear matrix inequalities. Finally, several simulation examples show the validity and superiority of the proposed observer design techniques by comparing with the conventional techniques.
