The stability analysis is performed in the switched system framework, particularly as the Markov jump linear system. There have been considerable research on stability analysis of the Markov jump systems. However, these methods are not applicable to large-scale systems because large numbers of subsystems result in extremely large number of switching modes. To circumvent this scalability issue, we propose a new reduced mode model for stability analysis, which is computationally scalable. We also consider the case in which the transition probabilities for the Markov jump process contain uncertainties. We provide a new method that estimates bounds for uncertain Markov transition probability matrix to guarantee the system stability. Numerical example verifies the computational efficiency of the proposed methods.
