The problem of stability for systems with multiple probabilistic intervals time-varying delay is investigated in this paper. First, it is assumed that the probability distributions of the time-varying delay falling into three intervals are known in prior. Two random variables obeying Bernoulli distributions, respectively, are introduced to characterize the probability of the time-varying delay taking values in three intervals. An equivalent new model including the existing ones as its special cases is given. Second, an appropriate Lyapunov-Krasovskii functional is constructed by exploiting more information of delay. Third, based on Lyapunov stability theory, several delay-distribution-dependent stability criteria are derived in the form of linear matrix inequalities by employing Reciprocally convex technique and Generalized Finsler's lemma. which can provide a larger upper bound of delay compared with the existed ones. Finally, a well-known numerical example is given to show the effectiveness of the proposed method.
