Synchronization of chaotic systems using time-delayed fuzzy state-feedback controller

By H K Lam, Bingo Wing-Kuen Ling, H H C Iu and S H Ling


This paper presents the fuzzy-model-based control approach to synchronize two chaotic systems subject to parameter uncertainties. A fuzzy state-feedback controller using the system state of response chaotic system and the time-delayed system state of drive chaotic system is employed to realize the synchronization. The time delay which complicates the system dynamics makes the analysis difficult. To investigate the system stability and facilitate the design of fuzzy controller, Takagi-Sugeno (T-S) fuzzy models are employed to represent the system dynamics of the chaotic systems. Furthermore, the membership grades of the T-S fuzzy models become uncertain due to the existence of parameter uncertainties which further complicates the system analysis. To ease the stability analysis and produce less conservative analysis result, the membership functions of both T-S fuzzy models and fuzzy controller are considered. Stability conditions are derived using Lyapunov-based approach to aid the design of fuzzy state-feedback controller to synchronize the chaotic systems. Simulation examples are presented to illustrate the merits of the proposed approach
