A new technique is presented for the stability and robustness analysis of nonlinear switched time-varying systems with uncertainties and time-varying delays. The delays are allowed to be discontinuous (but are required to be piecewise continuous) and arbitrarily long with known upper bounds. The technique uses an adaptation of Halanay’s inequality and a trajectory-based technique, and is used for designing switched controllers to stabilize linear time-varying systems with time-varying delays.
