A large-scale system is considered as a system constituted of subsystems which may be connected or disconnected from each other during operation. A new concept of connective stability is introduced by which a large-scale system is regarded as stable if it remains stable (in the sense of Lyapunov) under structural perturbations produced by the on-off participation of the subsystems. Algebraic conditions are developed that guarantee exponential connective stability of large-scale systems which may be composed of linear and nonlinear time-varying subsystems coupled by linear or nonlinear connections.
