In this effort, we present a comprehensive comparative study of decentralized and centralized adaptive schemes to control the so-called “Smart Valves” network employed in many applications including, but not limited to, Municipal Piping Systems and oil and gas fields. The network being considered here typically includes scores of coupled solenoid actuated butterfly valves. We here examine the multiphysics network of two interconnected actuated sets. The network undergoes the coupled chaotic and hyperchaotic dynamics subject to some initial conditions and critical parameters. The control schemes’ trade-offs are thoroughly investigated with respect to robustness, computational cost, and practical feasibility of control inputs in the presence of strong nonlinear interconnections and harmful chaotic and hyperchaotic responses.
