This paper investigates the synchronization of chaotic systems and its application in secure communication. First, a particle swarm optimization (PSO)-based proportional-integral (PI) controller is proposed for synchronization of general chaotic systems. By using the PSO algorithm, optimal control gains in PI controller are derived such that a performance index of integrated squared error (ISE) is as minimal as possible and synchronization can be achieved. Then a chaotic secure communication system based on synchronized coupled Lü systems is implemented using basic electronic components. Finally, both simulation results and the experimental results demonstrate the proposed PSO-based PI scheme's success in the secure communication application.
