A feedback control method and an adaptive feedback control method are proposed for Chua's circuit chaos system, which is a simple 3D autonomous system. The asymptotical stability is proven with Lyapunov theory for both of the proposed methods, and the system can be dragged to one of its three unstable equilibrium points respectively. Simulation results show that the proposed methods are valid, and control performance is improved through introducing adaptive technology.
