This paper studies the problem of predictive output feedback control for networked control systems (NCSs) with random communication delays. A networked-predictive-control scheme is employed to compensate for the network-induced delay. Furthermore, the time-varying predictive controller with mixed random delays for networked systems is introduced. Then, the system is formulated as a Markovian jump system. New techniques are presented to deal with the distributed delay in the discrete-time domain. Based on the analysis of closed-loop NCSs, the designed predictive time-varying output feedback controller can guarantee system stability. Simulation example demonstrates the compensation for random communication delays and data loss in networked systems using the proposed predictive scheme.
