This paper investigates the problem of projective synchronization in drive-response dynamical networks (DRDNs) with time-varying delay and parameter mismatch via impulsive control. Owing to projective factor and parameter mismatch, complete projective synchronization cannot be achieved. Therefore, a weak projective synchronization scheme is proposed to ensure that the DRDNs are in a state of synchronization with an error level. Based on the stability analysis of the impulsive functional differential equations, a general method of the weak projective synchronization with the error level is derived in DRDNs. Numerical simulations are provided to verify the correctness and effectiveness of the proposed method and results.
