In this paper, the control of chaos with a single controller, which provides simplicity in implementation, is investigated in continuous time nonlinear Rucklidge system. For this purpose, a linear feedback controller and a passive controller are constructed and added to the Rucklidge chaotic system. Lyapunov function is used to realize that the controller ensures the global asymptotic stability of the system. Owing to the controller, Rucklidge chaotic system can be regulated to its equilibrium points. Numerical simulations of the proposed methods and local relay control method have been demonstrated, compared and discussed.
