The computation of dominant eigenvalues of second-order linear control systems with multiple time-delays is tackled by using a contour integral method. The proposed approach depends on a reduced characteristic function and the associated characteristic matrix comprised of measured open-loop receptances. This reduced characteristic function is derived from the original characteristic function of the second-order time delayed systems based on the reasonable assumption that eigenvalues of the closed-loop system are distinct from those of the open-loop system, and has the same eigenvalues as those of the original. Then, the eigenvalues computation is equivalent to solve a nonlinear eigenvalue problem of the associated characteristic matrix by using a contour integral method. The proposed approach also utilizes the spectrum distribution features of the retarded time-delay systems. Finally, numerical examples are given to illustrate the effectiveness of the proposed approach. View Full-Text
