Paper Abstract

The direct method of Lyapunov is used to study the stability of a Lienard-type nonlinear system. The system is given in a form of n second-order ordinary differential equations. To establish the procedure for constructing Lyapunov function, a similar system is derived first, by multiplying both sides of the system equation by a transformation matrix. Then, a stability criterion for the Lienard-type nonlinear system, which introduces a new type Lyapunov function, is presented. The function obtained is a generalized Lyapunov function. The construction procedure given in this paper is applied to an example system represented by so-called Lienard's equation and the superiority of the proposed function is illustrated by numerical examples.
