"This paper is concerned with the study of both, local and global, uniform asymptotic stability for switched nonlinear time-varying (NLTV) systems through the detectability of outputmaps. With this aim the notion of reduced limiting control systems for switched NLTV systems whose switchings verify time/state dependent constraints, and the concept of weakly zerostate detectability for those reduced limiting systems are introduced. Necessary and sufficient conditions for the (global)uniform asymptotic stability of families of trajectories of the switched system are obtained in terms of this detectability property. These sufficient conditions in conjunction with the existence of multiple weak Lyapunov functions, yield a criterion for the (global) uniform asymptotic stability of families of trajectories of the switched system. This criterion can be seen as an extension of the classical Krasovskii-LaSalle theorem. An interesting feature of the results is that no dwell-time assumptions are made. Moreover, they can be used for establishing the global uniform asymptotic stability of switched NLTV system under arbitrary switchings. The effectiveness of the proposed results is illustrated by means of various interesting examples, including the stability analysis of a semi-quasi-Z-source inverter."
