  • In this paper, we consider a class of quadratic switching Liénard systems with three switching lines. We give an algorithm for computing the Lyapunov constants of this system. Based on this method, we obtain a center condition and three limit cycles bifurcating from the focus $ (0,0) $. Further, an example of quadratic switching systems is constructed to show the existence of six limit cycles bifurcating from the center. This is a new low bound on the maximal number of small-amplitude limit cycles obtained in such quadratic switching systems.
