This paper addresses the L2-induced gain analysis for switched linear systems. The authors exploit non-conservative necessary and sufficient conditions for the induced gain to lie below a prescribed positive constant and discuss on the induced gains of switched systems obtained for different classes of switching signals, which distinct regularity assumptions are placed on. They particularly show that the induced gain that is obtained for the class of every piecewise constant switching signal can also be attained by the more restricted classes of switching signals.
