In this paper, the problems of exponential stability and -gain analysis of event-triggered networked control systems (NCSs) with network-induced delays are studied. We first propose event-triggering conditions in the sensor side and controller side, respectively. Because the implementation of our event-triggering scheme only needs periodic supervision of the system state at the constant sampling instants, instead of being monitored continuously, it is expected that the scheme will improve the resource utilization. Taking the network-induced delays into account and using delay system approach, we constructed a unified model of NCSs with hybrid event-triggering schemes. On the basis of this model, sufficient conditions for the exponential stability and -gain analysis are developed in the form of LMIs by using a discontinuous Lyapunov–Krasovskii functional approach. Moreover, the corresponding results can be further extended to more general cases, where the system matrices of the considered plant contain parameter uncertainties, represented in either polytopic or norm-bounded frameworks. In addition, as a special case, we also present the exponential stability, -gain analysis, and the control feedback gain design of event-triggered NCSs without considering the effects of network-induced delays and event-triggering condition in the controller side. Finally, a simulation example is provided to illustrate the usefulness and effectiveness of the proposed hybrid event-triggering schemes.Copyright © 2012 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.
