One outcome of a PhD project (David Tingey). Industrial systems which involve time delays are difficult to control in general. In addition, the presence of a time-delay may make a control loop unstable. In this work, a new stability criterion and control law is provided to control a class of time delay systems with delay in the state. The result has been applied to a mechanical system and can also be applied to flight and marine control. This work was done as a joint collaboration with Leeds Metropolitan University. This work is supported by the EPSRC case PhD studentship.
