In this thesis, the stability analysis and control synthesis for uncertain switched time-delay systems are investigated. It is known that a wide variety of real-world systems are subject to uncertainty and also time-delay in their dynamics. These characteristics, if not taken into consideration in analysis and synthesis, can lead to important problems such as performance degradation or instability in a control system. On the other hand, the switching phenomenon often appears in numerous applications, where abrupt change is inevitable in the system model. Switching behavior in this type of systems can be triggered either by time, or by the state of the system. A theoretical framework to study various features of switched systems in the presence of uncertainty and time-delay (both neutral and retarded) would be of particular interest in important applications such as network control systems, power systems and communication networks. To address the problem of robust stability for the class of uncertain switched systems with unknown time-varying delay discussed above, sufficient conditions in the form of linear matrix inequalities (LMI) are derived. An adaptive switching control algorithm is then proposed for the stabilization of uncertain discrete time-delay systems subject to disturbance. It is assumed that the discrete time-delay system is highly uncertain, such that a single fixed controller cannot stabilize it effectively. Sufficient conditions are provided subsequently for the stability of switched time-delay systems with polytopic-type uncertainties. Moreover, an adaptive control scheme is provided to stabilize the uncertain neutral time-delay systems when the upper bounds on the system uncertainties are not available a priori . Simulations are provided throughout the thesis to support the theoretical results
