The present paper is concerned with the decentralized stabilization problem of large-scale systems with delays in the intercon-nections using sliding mode control. A robust stability condition of the sliding mode and a robust decentralized sliding mode controller are newly derived for large-scale delay systems. Also a proportional-integral sliding mode is designed to make it easy to assure the stability of dynamics in the sliding mode.
