This papers extends the Inclusion Principle to a class of linear continuous-time uncertain systems with state as well as control delays. The derived expansion-contraction relations include norm bounded arbitrarily time-varying real uncertainties and a point delay. They are easily applicable also to polytopic uncertainties. These structural conditions are further
specialized on closed-loop systems with arbitrarily time-varying parameters, a point
delay, and guaranteed quadratic costs. A linear matrix inequality (LMI) delay independent procedure is used for control design in the expanded space. The results are specialized on the overlapping decentralized control design. A numerical illustrative example is supplied.
A generalized structure of complementary matrices involved in the input-state-output Inclusion Principle for linear time-invariant systems (LTI) including contractibility conditions for static state feedback controllers is well known. In this paper, it is shown how to further extend this structure in a systematic way when considering contractibility of dynamic controllers. Necessary and sufficient conditions for contractibility are proved in terms of both unstructured and block structured complementary matrices for general expansion/contraction transformation matrices. Explicit sufficient conditions for blocks of complementary matrices ensuring contractibility are proved for general expansion/contraction transformation matrices. Moreover, these conditions are further specialized for a particular class of transformation matrices. The results are derived in parallel for two important cases of the Inclusion Principle namely for the case of expandability of controllers and the case of extensions.
