In the present paper, dwell time stability conditions of the switched delay systems are derived using scheduled Lyapunov-Krasovskii functions. The derivative of the Lyapunov functions are guaranteed to be negative semidefinite using free weighting matrices method. After representing the dwell time in terms of linear matrix inequalities, the upper bound of the dwell time is minimized using a bisection algorithm. Some numerical examples are given to illustrate effectiveness of the proposed method, and its performance is compared with the existing approaches. The yielding values of dwell time via the proposed technique show that the novel approach outperforms the previous ones.
