We analyze the stability of three classes of distributed order fractional differential equations (DOFDEs) with respect to the nonnegative density function. In this sense, we discover a robust stability condition for these systems based on characteristic function and new inertia concept of a matrix with respect to the density function. Moreover, we check the stability of a distributed order fractional WINDMI system to illustrate the validity of proposed procedure.
