In this paper a chaotic system is proposed via modifying hyperchaotic Chen system. Some basic dynamical properties, such as Lyapunov exponents, fractal dimension, chaotic behaviors of this system are studied. The conventional feedback, linear function feedback, nonlinear hyperbolic function feedback control methods are applied to control chaos to unstable equilibrium point. The conditions of stability to control the system is derived according to the Routh-Hurwitz criteria. Numerical results have shown the validity of the proposed schemes.
