Control and Synchronization with Known and Unknown Parameters

**Author(s)**Leave a comment

In this paper, we consider the chaos control for 4D hyperchaotic system by two cases, known & unknown parameters based on Lyapunov stability theory via nonlinear control. We find that there are two cofactors that have an effect on determining any case to achieve the control, the two cofactors are proposed in the control and the matrix that produce from the time derivative of Lyapunov function. In adding, we find some weakness cases in Lyapunov stability theory. For this reason, we design with only one controller and perform a simple change in this control in order to recognize the difference between these cases although all of the controllers are almost similar.

1. Introduction

Chaos phenomenon was firstly observed by Lorenz in 1963 [1] -[4] . Chaos control is one of the chaos phenomena, which contains two aspects, namely, chaos control and chaos synchronization [5] . Chaos control and chaos synchronization were once believed to be impossible until the 1990s when Ott et al. developed the OGY method to suppress chaos. Pecora and Carroll introduced a method to synchronize two identical chaotic systems with different initial conditions [2] [5] - [12] .

Many different techniques for chaos control and synchronization have been developed, such as a linear feedback method, active control approach, adaptive technique, time delay feedback approach, and back stepping method. Among them, nonlinear control is an effective method to control chaos [2] - [4] [6] [7] [9] [12] - [15] .

In dynamical systems, there are three types of parameters, known, unknown and uncertain parameters. However, some of the previous works achieved control and synchronization with unknown parameters only and another some achieved control and synchronization with known parameters only. In this paper, we perform chaos control for two cases and we find that the proposed control plays an important and active role to determine the case as well as the matrix of time derivative for Lyapunov function, where the strategy of this paper is based on designing only one control. We also perform some simple change into this control, study probability of suppression for each control by using Lyapunov stability theory and get three cases. In first case, we can achieve control directly when parameters are unknown; in second type, we need to modify in order to achieve control with known parameters; finally in third type, it is imposable to perform the control.

Although the accuracy of Lyapunov stability theory is not neglected and the nonlinear parts have been successful in the treatment of the first two types, but it failed to treat the third type. So, we refuge to use the linear approximation method to treat the problem and the weaknesses.

Briefly, this study poses three fundamental questions. First, when can we achieve chaos control with known parameters? Second, when can we achieve chaos control with unknown parameters? And third, how can we distinguish between these two cases? This paper begins with the suggestion of a new method that will answer these questions.

2. Problem Formulation and Our Methodology

In this section, we describe the problem formulation for the chaos control and chaos synchronization for hyperchaotic systems and our methodology using nonlinear control by basing on the Lyapunov stability theory.

Let us consider the hyperchaotic system in the following form:

(1)

where is the state of the system, is the matrix of the system parameters, and is the nonlinear part of the system, this nonlinear part can represent by many formulations, one of these formulations as, is the matrix of the nonlinear part of the system (1),

If we add the controller into the system (1), then the controlled system is given by:

(2)

The aim of the control problem is to design a feedback controller U such that.

But, in synchronization problem we needed two system, drive system and response system. Let us consider the system (1) as the drive system and the response system is given by the following forms:

(3)

where is the state of the system, is the matrix of the system parameters, and is the nonlinear part of the system. If and, then X and Y are the states of two identical (nearly identical) systems. If and/or, then X and Y are the states of two different systems.

The error dynamics for the synchronization can be expressed as

(4)

where. The objective of synchronization problem is to find a controller U such that.

It is clear that the problem of synchronization between the drive and response systems is replaced by the equivalent problem of stabilizing the system (4) using a suitable choice of the control U [10] .

In unknown parameter, we assume that the Lyapunov function is always formed as or identity matrix. As we know, both identity and diagonal matrices with positive diagonal elements are positive definite while the symmetric (not diagonal) matrix it is possible to a positive definite. So, is a positive definite function. And we can achieve the chaos control by selecting suitable nonlinear controller U to make the time derivative of the Lyapunov function be negative definite, i.e. the matrix Q is a positive definite, since this matrix is always identity or diagonal in unknown parameter. But in known parameters, the matrix Q is not diagonal. So, we needed to modify the matrix P in order to make the matrix Q is diagonal matrix. Consequently, we ensure to get negative definite function i.e.. By this difference we can recognize between two cases (chaos control with known and unknown parameters) based on the Lyapunov stability theory.

According to the above discussion, and based on Lyapunov stability theory, we can obtain the following conclusion.

Corollary 1. To determine the chaos control with known and unknown parameters we based on two cofators:

a) Controller design, b) the matrix Q.

If we get the matrix Q as:

a) Identity or diagonal matrix. Then, we choose chaos control with unknown parameters; b) not diagonal matrix. Then, we choose chaos control with known parameters (in order to translate not diagonal matrix to diagonal we must give the value of parameters and make modify on the matrix P).

3. Chaos Control

In this section, we achieve controlling problems with known and unknown parameters for the hyperchaotic system [3] [4] , which is described by the following nonlinear differential equation

(5)

where, and are positive constant parameters, this system is hyperchaotic system when, , and, and has only one equilibrium.

In order to control above hyperchaotic system to zero, the feedback controllers of and are added to the hyperchaotic system (5) according to the formulation (2). Then, the controlled hyperchaotic system is given by:

(6)

in which and d are unknown parameters, and are feedback controllers to be designed.

3.1. Controlling Hyperchaotic System (6) with Unknown Parameters

In the following theorem, we proposed nonlinear control with unknown parameters to control system (6).

Theorem 1. The controlled hyperchaotic system (6) will achieve globally asymptotically stable with the following nonlinear controllers:

(7)

Proof. Substituting the controllers (7) in the system (6), we have

(8)

According to the formulation (1), the above system can be rewritten as:

(9)

To achieve the control of this system, there are two methods, Lyapunov stability theory and linearization method.

Based on the Lyapunov stability theory and corollary 1, we construct the following Lyapunov candidate function

(10)

where and every diagonal matrix with positive diagonal elements is a positive definite. So is also a positive definite function.

Now, by controllers (7), the time derivative of the Lyapunov function is:

(11)

Here is identity matrix and according to corollary 1. We can achieve chaos control with unknown parameters, and every identity matrix is positive definite. So, we have is a negative definite function. Hence, the controlled system (6) can asymptotically converge to the unstable equilibrium with the controllers (7).

Also, by using the linearization method, we have the characteristic equation as:

(12)

To solve this equation with unknown parameters, we needed to analytically (Theoretical) methods such that Gardan method and Routh-Hurwitz method, while using the numerical methods when we knew these parameters.

By Routh-Hurwitz method, Equation (12) has all roots with negative real parts if and only if and. So, it is clear that satisfies the conditions for this method. Consequently, according to two methods (Lyapunov stability theory, linearization method), system (6) with control (7) is globally asymptotically stable. The proof is complete.

3.2. Controlling Hyperchaotic System (6) with Known Parameters

If we make simple change into control (7) i.e. change only second equation to become the following forms:

(13)

and used the same of the Lyapunov function in Equation (10). Then, we get the time derivative for the Lyapunov function as the following:

(14)

where

By this control, we obvious the matrix is not diagonal and contains parameters. Here are two ways to tell if it’s above matrix is a positive definite, in the first way, we can use determinants test or pivot test without we know the value of these parameters while in the second way (based on corollary 1.), We must give the value of these parameters in order to translate the matrix to the diagonal matrix. Consequently, the control problem with unknown parameters is replaced by the equivalent problem of controlling with known parameters. But if we substitute the value of these parameters as, , and in the matrix we get a matrix with a negative definition and the method is failing, For treatment this problem we must choose a suitable Lyapunov function or modify the matrix P to make the matrix is a positive definite, and the following theorem explains this modification.

Theorem 2. The controlled hyperchaotic system (6) with nonlinear control (13) is globally asymptotically stable.

Proof. The system (6) with control (13) becomes:

(15)

This system can be reformulated in the following form:

(16)

Now, according to the Lyapunov second method, Let us modify the Lyapunov function by the following form i.e. modify the matrix p to get the matrix:

(17)

where is a diagonal matrix

So, we have the time derivative of the Lyapunov function as:

(18)

where is also diagonal matrix

Consequently, we translate the matrix (not diagonal) to matrix (diagonal) for the same control (13) after we input the value of parameters, at the same time we modified the matrix p to become the matrix. Then, we get, which gives asymptotic stability of the system (6) by Lyapunov stability theory. This means that the controller proposes is achieved the suppressed of system (6).

On the other hand, the control problem for a system (6) with control (13) can be achieved by linearization method. Then, we have the characteristic equation forms:

(19)

Since the parameters are known. So, we have

(20)

and the roots of the above equation are. Therefore, all roots with negative real parts. Consequently, we achieved the control system (6) by linearization method, the proof is complete.

Remark1. We founded the roots of Equation (20) by numerical methods. Also, we can use Gardan and Routh-Hurwitz methods for it.

Obviously, from theorem 1, the matrix with control (7) is succeed to achieve the control directly while in theorem 2, we needed to modify the matrix P to become in order to equivalent the control (13), but in some time, it is impossible to modify the matrix P to ensure the convergence of the zero by using Lyapunov stability theory which is refer to the weakness for this method and the following theorem explain this case.

Theorem 3. If the nonlinear controllers are proposed as:

(21)

i.e. simple change in four equation for control (7). Then, the zero solution of the controlled hyperchaotic system (6) can’t convergent by Lyapunov stability theory and is globally asymptotically stable by linearization method.

Proof. Substituting the controllers (21) in the system (6), we have

(22)

Also system (22) can be rewritten (According to the formulation (1)) as:

(23)

To check the control of this system by using Lyapunov stability theory, we can construct a Lyapunov function as

and then we have the time derivative as the following:

(24)

Here is not diagonal matrix and contains a parameter

So it is impossible to turn this matrix to a diagonal matrix with positive parameter, and we have is a positive definite function and failed this method to control (21). In order to overcome this problem, we used the linearization method. Then, we have the characteristic equation forms:

(25)

Since the parameters are known, we have

(26)

And the roots of this equation are therefore we succeed to achieve the chaos control for system (6) with control (21) by linearization method only.

4. Chaos Synchronization

In this section, we consider the synchronization problem of the hyperchaotic system (5) with known and unknown parameters using corollary 1. and how we can apply this corollary to determine between them,

Let us consider the hyperchaotic system (5) as the drive system, and the controlled hyperchaotic system (6) as the response system.

Subtracting system (5) from the system (6), we obtain the error dynamical system between the drive system and the response system which is given by:

(27)

where and.

System (27) describes the error dynamics according to formulation 4.

4.1. Chaos Synchronization of System (27) with Unknown Parameters

Theorem 4. The zero solution of the error dynamical system (27) is asymptotically stable if nonlinear control is designed as following:

(28)

Proof. Substituting the controllers (28) in the system (27), we have

(29)

According to the formulation (1), the above system can be rewritten as:

(30)

Based on the Lyapunov stability theory, we construct the following Lyapunov candidate function

(31)

And the time derivative of the Lyapunov function is:

(32)

Here. So, we perform synchronization with unknown parameters according to corollary 1. We have is a negative definite function. Hence, the system (27) can asymptotically converge to the unstable equilibrium with the controllers (28).

As well, by using the linearization method, we have the characteristic equation as:

(33)

By Routh-Hurwitz method, Equation (33) has all roots with negative real parts if and only if and. So, it is clear that satisfies the conditions for this method. Consequently, according to two methods (Lyapunov stability theory, linearization method) system (27) with control (28) is globally asymptotically stable, the proof is completed.

4.2. Chaos Synchronization of System (27) with Known Parameters

Based on the previously discussed in Section 3 to make simple change into a new control (change only in first equation for control 28) to become as:

(34)

and used the same of the Lyapunov function in Equation (31). Then, we take the time derivative for the Lyapunov function as the following:

(35)

where

Obviously, the matrix is not diagonal, and contains parameters. Therefore, we can achieve chaos control with known parameters according to corollary 1, and we must modify the matrix P in order to become the matrix is a positive definite, and the following theorem treated this case.

Theorem 5. The error dynamical system (27) with control (34) is globally asymptotically stable.

Proof. The system (27) with control (34) becomes as:

(36)

This system can be reformulated in the following form:

(37)

Now, according to the Lyapunov second method, Let us modify the Lyapunov function of the following form:

(38)

where is a diagonal matrix

So, we have the time derivative of the Lyapunov function as:

(39)

where is also diagonal matrix

We translate the matrix (not diagonal) to matrix (diagonal) for the same control (34) after we input the value of parameters at the same time we modified the matrix p to become the matrix. Then we get

which gives asymptotic stability of the system (27) by Lyapunov stability theory. This means that the controller proposes is achieved the suppressed of system (27).

On the other hand, the control problem for a system (27) with control (34) can be achieved by linearization method. Then, we have the characteristic equation forms:

(40)

Since the parameters are known, we have

(41)

And the roots of this equation are therefore we succeed to achieve the synchronization of the drive system (5) and the response system (6).

In adding, if we choose nonlinear control (simple change into four equations for control (34)) as:

(42)

with the matrix p then we have the matrix

To translate the matrix into diagonal matrix we must modify the matrix p in the following form then we have

(43)

where is also diagonal matrix.

Obviously, from theorem 4, we can perform the controlling of error dynamics system (27) by using controller (28) with matrix p directly, while in theorem 5 we must modify the matrix P to become in order to equivalent the control (34), but in some time, it is impossible to modify the matrix P to guarantee the convergent to the zero by using Lyapunov stability theory and the following theorem to explain this case.

Theorem 6. If the nonlinear controllers are proposed as:

(44)

We multiplied the parameter d by number 2 in equation four for control (28). Then, it is impossible to perform the synchronization by Lyapunov stability theory.

Proof. The system (27) with control (44) becomes as

(45)

This system can be reformulated in the following form:

(46)

Now, to check the control of this system by using Lyapunov stability theory, we can construct a Lyapunov function as and then we have the time derivative as the following:

(47)

Here, is not diagonal matrix and contains a parameter

So it is impossible to transient the matrix into a diagonal matrix with positive parameter, and we have is a positive definite function and failed this method to control (44). In order to overcome this weakness, we used the linearization method. Then, we have the characteristic equation forms:

(48)

Since the parameters are known, we have

(49)

and the roots of this equation are therefore we succeed to achieve the chaos control for system (6) with control (44) by linearization method only.

Verification, we can be used the numerical simulation to validate these proposed controls, we choose the parameters, , and and the initial values of the drive system and the response system are and (5,3,35,-10) respectively. From Figure 1(a), we can see the behavior of the system (5) without control, while Figures 1(b)-(d) represent the behavior of the system (6) with control (7), (13) and control (21) respectively. And in Figure 2(a), there is no synchronization between two identical hyperchaotic systems without control, while in Figures 2(b)-(d) we can see the synchronization between the drive

system (5) and the response system (6) with control (28), (34) and control (44) respectively.

5. Conclusions

In this paper, we study the chaos control for 4D hyperchaotic system based on Lyapunov stability theory, where this method is effective and accurate in finding stability of systems, and in view of dealing with nonlinear parts of systems and not neglecting those parts which support the strength and accuracy.

Nevertheless, it loses this property in some time. As the case of the system in this paper, we design the control to ensure the survival of nonlinear parts in the system. And in some cases, it can suppress without knowing the parameters of the system and the other cases. We must know that the parameters and third case can’t be suppressed. Then, the Lyapunov stability theory will be failed in sometimes. Therefore, we use the linear approximation method to ensure the validity of this proposed control. We have succeeded in achieving control, and we find that the simple difference in the control is responsible to get these three cases. Through this method, we can treat every case when the nonlinear parts have no effect on the system. Finally, numerical simulations show the effectiveness of the proposed chaos control and synchronization schemes.
