Chaos in a fractional-order micro-electro-mechanical resonator and its suppression

Abstract  The present paper investigates the existence of chaos in a non-autonomous fractional-order micro-electro-mechanical resonator system (FOMEMRS). Using the maximal Lyapunov exponent criterion, we show that the FOMEMRS exhibits chaos. Strange attractors of the system are plotted to validate its chaotic behavior. Afterward, a novel fractional finite-time controller is introduced to suppress the chaos of the FOMEMRS with model uncertainties and external disturbances in a given finite time. Using the latest version of the fractional Lyapunov theory, the finite time stability and robustness of the proposed scheme are proved. Finally, we present some computer simulations to illustrate the usefulness and applicability of the proposed method.
