In this thesis we deal with stability analysis of switched feedback system with time delays. We assume that, at any given time for each “candidate” system a controller is designed and a fixed feedback system is obtained until the next switching instant. We investigate the conservativeness of an LMI-based stability test for the time delay systems. This test is used for the dwell time analysis. After obtaining the limitations of this test, we find the exact bounds of allowable parameters appearing in the LMI-based test, in order to optimize the dwell time. For this purpose we consider simple first order systems and higher order systems separately. We also consider the LQR-based switched feedback controllers with time delays and investigate the effects of weighting matrices Q and R on the dwell time.
