Back-Stepping Sliding Mode Controller for Uncertain Chaotic Colpitts Oscillator with no Chattering


Department of Electrical, Biomedical and Mechatronics Engineering, Qazvin Branch, Islamic Azad University, Qazvin, Iran


By introducing Colpitts oscillator as a chaotic system, this paper deals with back-stepping control method and investigates the restrictions and problems of the controller where non-existence of a suitable response in the presence of uncertainty is the most important problem to note. In this paper, the back-stepping sliding mode method is introduced as a robust method for controlling nonlinear Colpitts oscillator system with chaotic behavior. Thereafter, we simulated the proposed method and compared its advantages with that of the previous method.  The experimental results show that the most important advantages of the proposed method are making system robust in case of uncertainties and disturbances, and also having a fast response.
