A novel intermittent dynamic event-triggered control is proposed to investigate the exponential synchronization in mean square (ESMS) of stochastic complex networks (SCNs). In contrast to existing literature, the proposed intermittent control is based on dynamic event-triggering instead of static time-triggering during the control interval. Meanwhile, the number of event triggers can be reduced by introducing an exponential function. Moreover, for each sample path solution of SCNs, the existence of a minimum positive inter-event time is guaranteed in all the event-generators proposed in this paper. In addition, based on the Lyapunov method and the graph theory, synchronization criteria for the ESMS of SCNs under the intermittent dynamic event-triggered control are established. Finally, theoretical results are applied to islanded microgrid systems and simulations are given to verify the effectiveness of the results.
