This paper proposes an innovative method for robust stability analysis of dynamic systems with interval time-varying delay and uncertainties of structural and polytopic types. The innovation of the method includes employment of a tighter integral inequality and construction of an appropriate type of Lyapunov function. The stability criteria derived from this method significantly improves and simplifies existing stability conditions obtained through employing the technique with the least number of Linear matrix inequality (LMI) variables. The simplicity of the stability criteria results from the fact that neither any useful terms are ignored in dealing with cross product terms nor any superfluous free weighting matrices are introduced in the theoretical derivation. Numerical examples are given to demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed method.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
