This chapter introduces the Internally Positive Representation of linear systems with multiple time-varying state delays. The technique, previously introduced for the undelayed case, aims at building a positive representation of systems whose dynamics is, in general, indefinite in sign. As a consequence, stability criteria for positive time-delay systems can be exploited to analyze the stability of the original system. As a result, an easy-to-check sufficient condition for the delay-independent stability is provided, that is compared with some well known conditions available in the literature.
