Adaptive Control of Chaos in Lorenz System

Document Type



This paper treats the control of chaos in Lorenz systems in the presence of system parameter uncertainty. An adaptive control law is derived such that in the closed-loop system the state of the system can be regulated to a specified point in the state space. Simulation results are presented which show the suppression of chaotic behavior and the regulation of state vector to the desired terminal point in spite of the uncertainty in system parameters.
