This paper presents a new continuous-time four-dimensional autonomous system based on Lorenz system. We analyze the dissipation, equilibrium, and Lyapunov exponents of the system. Lyapunov exponent spectrum demonstrates that the system possesses rich dynamic behaviors if the parameters of the system vary. In a large range of parameters, the system is hyperchaotic. By using fast terminal sliding mode control method, the synchronization of two different chaotic systems is studied. Synchronization between the new system and hyperchaotic Chen system with noise perturbation is illustrated. Simulation results verify the effectiveness of the proposed method.
