Complex dynamics are observed in time-delay systems because the presence of time delay could induce unexpected oscillations. Therefore, time-delay systems are effective for constructing chaotic signal generators which have used in various engineering applications. In this paper, a new system with a single scalar time delay and a saturation nonlinearity is introduced. Dynamics of such time-delay system are investigated by using phase planes, bifurcation diagrams and the maximum Lyapunov exponent with the variance of system parameters. It is interesting that the time-delay system can generate double-scroll chaotic attractors despite its elegant model. Circuitry of the system is also presented to show the feasibility of the theoretical model.

1. Introduction

Chaos theory has received significant attentions in last decades (Lorenz, 1963; Anishchenko, 1993; Grebogi, 1997; Hasselblatt, 2003; Davies, 2004; Banerjee, 2011; Azar & Vaidyanathan 2015a, b, c; Zhu & Azar, 2015; Azar & Zhu, 2015). Various chaotic systems and their synchronization schemes have presented in the literature (Vaidyanathan & Azar, 2015a, b, c, d; Vaidyanathan et al., 2015a, b, c; Pham, 2015). In fact, chaos appears naturally in weather and climate, biology, sociology, and physics etc. (Strogatz, 1994; Holland, 1998; Hilborn, 2000). Moreover, chaotic systems with their complex characteristics have also been successfully utilized in diverse applications, ranging from secure chaotic communications (Cuomo, 1993), chaotic cryptography (Kocarev, 2001; Alvarez, 2006; Koc, 2009; Kocarev, 2011), information encryption (Zhang, 2005; Tong, 2009; Wang, 2012; Seyedzadeh, 2012; Volos, 2013), economics (Medio, 2009), robotics (Volos, 2012), to liquid shakers (Zhang, 2007) and so on.
