Finite-time stability analysis of fractional order time-delay systems: Gronwall’s approach. (English) Zbl 1165.34408

Summary: A stability test procedure is proposed for linear nonhomogeneous fractional order systems with a pure time delay. Some basic results from the area of finite time and practical stability are extended to linear, continuous, fractional order time-delay systems given in state-space form. Sufficient conditions of this kind of stability are derived for particular class of fractional time-delay systems. A numerical example is given to illustrate the validity of the proposed procedure.
