This work presents significant developments in Networked Control Systems based on PID, Internal Model Control and Smith Predictor algorithms. The main purpose of this research paper is to study the performance and robustness offered by these control design methods in handling the challenging control problem encountered with systems subject to time-varying delays and dropouts. It is expected that proposed design methods achieve design requirements such as margins of robustness, performance criterions and stability conditions while the simplicity and flexibility of the controller are preferred. Performance of these controllers is evaluated and extensive simulations of these methods are presented using Matlab TrueTime toolbox.
