This paper deals with an optimal design of linear networked control systems. We study a class of delayed dynamical systems in the continuous time-domain and propose an optimization approach based on the newly elaborated hybrid LQ-type techniques. Moreover, we develop an explicit connection between the given networked control processes and auxiliary hybrid models. The optimal feedback control strategy for the networked systems is obtained as a consequence of the Riccati-formalism for the associated hybrid LQ problems. We also consider some alternative optimization techniques and discuss stability properties of the optimal trajectories.
