We consider the problem of the robust stability of a class of uncertain T–S fuzzy neutral systems with time delay under time-varying parametric uncertainties using the Lyapunov–Krasovskii approach, where the parametric uncertainty is assumed to be norm bounded. By choosing a new Lyapunov–Krasovskii function, we are able to propose less conservative robust stability criteria in terms of linear matrix inequalities (LMIs) such that the uncertain T–S fuzzy neutral system under consideration remains asymptotically stable. The reduced conservatism of the proposed stability criterion compared with recently reported results is attributed to our using the Jensen inequality. The obtained results can also reduce the computational complexity.
