Abstract : In this paper, a numerical analysis to assess stability of time-delay systems is investigated. The proposed approach is based on the design of a finite-dimensional approximation of the infinite-dimensional space of solutions of the system. Indeed, based on the dynamical coefficients on the sequence made of the first Legendre polynomials, the original time-delay system is modelled by a finite-dimensional model interconnected to a modelling error. Putting aside the interconnection, the resulting finite-dimensional system turns out to be a nice approximation of the time-delay system. Using Padé arguments, the eigenvalues of this finite-dimensional system are proven to converge towards a set of characteristic roots of the original time-delay system. Furthermore, considering now the whole interconnected system and having a deeper look at the interconnection, an enriched Lyapunov-Krasovskii functional is proposed to develop a sufficient condition expressed in terms of linear matrix inequalities for the stability of the time-delay system. Both results are illustrated on toys examples and compared with other existing methods.
