This paper presents a mode-switching sliding-mode control (MSMC) scheme that combines different sliding-mode control schemes to alleviate adverse effect while achieving precise control tasks. To achieve certain robustness and chattering alleviation, a design of disturbance observer based state-dependent boundary layer is proposed. The proposed method will provide a state-dependent boundary-layer in which the unknown dynamics is estimated a disturbance observer and then utilize it to calculate the width of boundary layer on-line. The convergent analysis of this state-dependent boundary-layer is provided with two theorems. Finally, its efficacy is further validated through experiments on the regulation control of a maglev platform.
