This paper develops three novel hybrid control techniques addressing fast energy equipartition for cyber-physical network systems, and discusses the future application of the proposed approaches to power network systems. The proposed hybrid distributed controller architectures are designed to mimick the dynamic behavior of thermodynamic systems to achieve the robust performance of cyber-physical network systems. The proposed controller architectures are constructed in such a way that each controller has a one-directional energy transfer from a plant to itself, and exchanges energy with its neighboring controllers. Energy-based resetting laws and power-based resetting laws are utilized in the hybrid controllers. Then, the hybrid control techniques are applied to power network systems, and simulation studies are carried out to show the efficacy of the proposed approaches.
