Abstract For a parametrically excited Duffing system we propose a bifurcation control method in order to stabilize the trivial steady state in the frequency response and in order to eliminate jump in the force response, by employing a combined linear-plus-nonlinear feedback control. Because the bifurcation of the system is characterized by its modulation equations, we first determine the order of the feedback gain so that the feedback modifies the modulation equations. By theoretically analyzing the modified modulation equations, we show that the unstable region of the trivial steady state can be shifted and the nonlinear character can be changed, by means of the bifurcation control with the above feedback. The shift of the unstable region permits the stabilization of the trivial steady state in the frequency response, and the suppression of the discontinuous bifurcation due to the change of the nonlinear character allows the elimination of the jump in the quasistationary force response. Furthermore, by performing numerical simulations, and by comparing the responses of the uncontrolled system and the controlled one, we clarify that the proposed bifurcation control is available for the stabilization of the trivial steady state in the frequency response and for the reduction of the jump in the nonstationary force response.
