A large number of research works on networked control systems (NCSs) are from the time delay system (TDS) perspective, however, it is noticed that the description of the network-induced delay is too general to represent the practical reality. By recognising this fact, a novel TDS model for NCSs is thus obtained by depicting the network-induced delay more specifically. Based on this model, stability (robust stability) and stabilisation results are obtained using delay-dependent analysis approach, which are less conservative compared with conventional models because of the specific description of the network-induced delay in the new model. A numerical example illustrates the effectiveness of the proposed approach.
