Hidden attractors in a new complex generalised Lorenz hyperchaotic system, its synchronisation using adaptive contraction theory, circuit validation and application

Original Paper


Objectives of the paper are (1) to design two new real and complex no equilibrium point hyperchaotic systems, (2) to design synchronisation technique for the new systems using the contraction theory and (3) to validate the results by using circuit realisation. First a new no equilibrium point hyperchaotic system is developed using a 3-D generalised Lorenz system; then using the new system a new complex no equilibrium point hyperchaotic system is reported. Both the new systems have hidden chaotic attractors. Various dynamical behaviours are observed in the new systems like chaotic, periodic, quasi-periodic and hyperchaotic. Both the systems have inverse crisis route to chaos with the variation of parameter a and crisis route to chaos with the variation of parameters \(b,\ c\) and d. These phenomena along with hidden attractors in a complex hyperchaotic system are not seen in the literature. Synchronisation between the identical new hyperchaotic systems is achieved using the contraction theory. Further the synchronisation between the identical new complex hyperchaotic systems is achieved using adaptive contraction theory. The proposed synchronisation strategies are validated using the MATLAB simulation and circuit implementation results. Further, an application of the proposed system is shown by transmitting and receiving an audio signal.
