In this paper, a model of active control system with state-dependent actuation time delay is investigated. Galerkin projection scheme is used to obtain its low dimensional approximation system. State-dependency and effect on dynamics and performance of actuation delay in this active control system are considered. The following results are obtained. Firstly, a state-dependent actuation delay is proposed, which has never been reported in the previous works. It displays that actuation delay is state-dependent. Secondly, employing Galerkin projection scheme, low dimensional approximation system of this delayed active control system is obtained. At last, its stability and Hopf bifurcation are investigated by Routh-Hurwitz Criterion and Hopf bifurcation theory. Using software WinPP, numerical simulation is executed and supports the theoretical results in this paper.
