Inspired from recent developments in the area of time delay systems, a new methodology to study the stability of such a class of distributed parameter systems is presented here. The idea is to use a polynomial approximation of the infinite dimensional state of the heat equation in order to build an enriched energy functional. A well known efficient integral inequality (Bessel inequality) will allow to obtain stability conditions expressed in terms of linear matrix inequalities. We will eventually test our approach on academic examples in order to illustrate the efficiency of our theoretical results.
