Based on Lyapunov stabilization theory, this paper proposes a proportional plus integral time-delayed controller to stabilize unstable equilibrium points (UPOs) embedded in chaotic attractors. The criterion is successfully applied to the classic Chua’s circuit. Theoretical analysis and numerical simulation show the effectiveness of this controller.
