Stability analysis of switched time-delay systems
This paper addresses the asymptotic stability of switched time delay systems with heterogenous time invariant time delays. Piecewise Lyapunov-Razumikhin functions are introduced for the switching candidate systems to investigate the stability in the presence of infinite number of switchings. We provide sufficient conditions in terms of the minimum dwell time to guarantee asymptotic stability under the assumptions that each switching candidate is delay-independently or delaydependently stable. Conservatism analysis is also provided by comparing with the dwell time conditions for switched delay free systems. © 2008 IEEE.
