This paper is concerned with the problem of delay-dependent stability of time-delay systems. Firstly, it introduces a new useful integral inequality which has been proved to be less conservative than the previous inequalities. Next, the inequality combines delay-decomposition approach with uncertain parameters applied to time-delay systems, based on the new Lyapunov-Krasovskii functionals and new stability criteria for system with time-delay have been derived and expressed in terms of LMIs. Finally, a numerical example is provided to show the effectiveness and the less conservative feature of the proposed method compared with some recent results.
