Exponential Stability for Time-Delay Systems with Interval Time-Varying Delays and Nonlinear Perturbations

  • O. M. Kwon
  • J. H. Park


In this paper, the problem of an exponential stability for time-delay systems with interval time-varying delays and nonlinear perturbations is investigated. Based on the Lyapunov method, a new delay-dependent criterion for exponential stability is established in terms of LMI (linear matrix inequalities). Numerical examples are carried out to support the effectiveness of our results.
