This paper is concerned with the problem of designing a fault-tolerant controller for uncertain discrete-time networked control systems against actuator possible fault. The step difference between the running step and the time stamp of the used plant state is modeled as a finite state Markov chain of which the transition probabilities matrix information is limited. By introducing actuator fault indicator matrix, the closed-loop system model is obtained by means of state augmentation technique. The sufficient conditions on the stochastic stability of the closed-loop system are given and the fault-tolerant controller is designed by solving a linear matrix inequality. A numerical example is presented to illustrate the effectiveness of the proposed method.
