This paper studies sampled-data implementation of event-triggered PI control for time-delay systems with parametric uncertainties. The systems are given by continuous-time linear systems with parameter uncertainty polytopes. We propose an event-triggered PI controller, in which the controller transmits its signal to the actuator when its relative value goes beyond a threshold. A state-space formulation of the Smith predictor is used to compensate the time-delay. An asymptotic stability condition is derived in the form of LMIs using a Lyapunov-Krasovskii functional. Numerical examples illustrate that our proposed controller reduces the communication load without performance degradation and despite plant uncertainties.
