In this paper, we investigate the creation of strange attractors in a switch-controlled MLC (Murali-Lakshmanan-Chua) circuit. The design and use of this circuit is motivated by a recent mathematical theory of rank one attractors developed by Wang and Young. Strange attractors are created by periodically kicking a weakly stable limit cycle emerging from the center of a supercritical Hopf bifurcation, and are found in numerical simulations by following a recipe-like algorithm. Rigorous conditions for chaos are derived and various switch control schemes, such as synchronous, asynchronous, single-, and multi-pulse, are investigated in numerical simulations.
