Current hot issue of networked control systems(NCSs) remains how to optimize the signal transmission in imperfect links, especially, data missing(between the controller and actuator) is a potential source of poor performance of the control system. Here, stochastic variables satisfying markov jump process are used to describe the fading channel. Considering the uncertainty factor of plant, a practical compensation technique is utilized to minimize the effects caused by data dropout. Attention is paid to designing a useful control law to drive the closed-loop system stable and preserve a guaranteed infinite-horizon performance function, where the infinite-horizon control moves are parameterized as a free control move. Furthermore, the corresponding problems about recursive feasibility and stochastic stability are established by a set of linear matrix inequalities. Simulation results are shown to verify the performance of the proposed approach.
