In this research work, a twelve-term novel 5-D hyperchaotic Lorenz system with three quadratic nonlinearities has been derived by adding a feedback control to a ten-term 4-D hyperchaotic  Lorenz system (Jia, 2007) with three quadratic nonlinearities. The 4-D hyperchaotic Lorenz system (Jia, 2007) has the Lyapunov exponents L1 = 0.3684, L2 = 0.2174, L3 = 0 and L4 = -12.9513, and the Kaplan-Yorke dimension of this 4-D system is found as D_KY = 3.0452. The 5-D novel hyperchaotic Lorenz system proposed in this work  has the Lyapunov exponents L1 = 0.4195, L2 = 0.2430, L3 = 0.0145, L4 = 0 and L5 = -13.0405, and the Kaplan-Yorke dimension of this 5-D system is found as D_KY = 4.0159. Thus, the novel 5-D hyperchaotic Lorenz system has a maximal Lyapunov exponent (MLE), which is greater than the maximal Lyapunov exponent (MLE) of the 4-D hyperchaotic Lorenz system. The 5-D novel hyperchaotic Lorenz system has a unique equilibrium point at the origin, which is a saddle-point and hence unstable. Next, an adaptive controller is designed to stabilize the novel 5-D hyperchaotic Lorenz system with unknown system parameters. Moreover, an adaptive controller is designed to achieve global hyperchaos synchronization of the identical novel 5-D hyperchaotic Lorenz systems with unknown system parameters. Finally, an electronic circuit realization of the novel 5-D hyperchaotic Lorenz system using SPICE is described in detail to confirm the feasibility of the theoretical model.

The paper presents an approximation method for elementary fractional order transfer function containing both pole and zero. This class of  transfer functions can be applied for example to build model - based special control algorithms.
The proposed method bases on Charef approximation. The problem of cancelation pole by zero  with  useful conditions was considered, the accuracy discussion with the use of interval approach was done also. Results were depicted by examples.

Adaptive control of the time-delay systems is presented in the paper. Despite the use of MRAC based design, only the model following (not perfect model following) is considered. The methods of a classical MRAC design are preserved to the maximum extent which allows further extensions of the algorithm such as the robust adaptive control modifications. The adaptive algorithm effectiveness is presented by means of illustrative examples.

Ship motion in the sea is a complex nonlinear kinematics. The hydrodynamic coefficients of ship model are very difficult to accurately determine. Establishing accurate mathematical model of ship motion is difficult because of changing random factors in the marine environment. Aiming at seeking a method of control to realize ship positioning, intelligent control algorithms are adopt utilizing operator's experience. Fuzzy controller and the neural network controller are respectively designed. Through simulations and experiments, intelligent control algorithm can deal with the complex nonlinear motion, and has good robustness. The ship dynamic positioning system with neural network control has high positioning accuracy and performance.

An off-line methodology was proposed for enhancing the robustness of an initial Generalized Predictive Control (GPC) by convex optimization of the Youla parameter. However, this procedure of robustification is restricted with the case of the systems affected only by unstructured uncertainties. This paper proposes an extension of this method to the systems subjected to both unstructured and structured polytopic uncertainties. The main idea consists in adding supplementary constraints to the optimization problem which validates the Lipatov stability condition at each vertex of the polytope. These polytopic uncertainties impose a set of non convex quadratic constraints. The globally optimal solution is found by means of the GloptiPoly3 software. Therefore, this robustification provides stability robustness towards unstructured uncertainties for the nominal system, while guaranteeing stability properties over a specified polytopic domain of uncertainties. Finally, an illustrative example is given.

This paper proposes a new adaptive sliding mode control scheme for achieving coordinated motion control of a group of autonomous underwater vehicles with variable added mass. The control law considers the communication constraints in the acoustic medium. A common reference frame for velocity is assigned to a virtual leader dynamically. The performances of the proposed adaptive SMC were compared with that of a passivity based controller. To save the time and traveling distance for reaching the FRP by the follower AUVs, a sliding mode controller is proposed in this paper that drives the state trajectory of the AUV into a switching surface in the state space. It is observed from the obtained results that the proposed SMC provides improved performance in terms of accurately tracking the desired trajectory within less time compared to the passivity based controller. A communication consensus is designed ensuring the transfer of information among the AUVs so that they move collectively as a group. The stability of the overall closed-loop systems are analysed using Lyapunov theory and simulation results confirmed the robustness and efficiency of proposed controller.
