In this paper we study the problem how to obtain a new unified procedure to design a robust gain-scheduled and switched controller for continuous-time systems described by a novel robust plant model using the parameter dependent quadratic stability (PDQS) approach. In the proposed design procedure with output feedback a novel quadratic cost function is proposed which allows to obtain different performance dependence on the working points. Finally a numerical example is investigated
