Catastrophic chaotic and hyperchaotic dynamical behavior have been experimentally observed in the so-called "Smart Valves" network, given certain critical parameters and initial conditions. The centralized network-based control of these coupled systems may effectively mitigate the harmful dynamics of the valve-actuator configuration which can be potentially caused by a remote set and would gradually affect the whole network. In this work, we address the centralized control of two bi-directional solenoid actuated butterfly valves dynamically coupled in series subject to the chaotic and hyperchaotic dynamics. An interconnected adaptive scheme is developed and examined to vanish both the chaotic and hyperchaotic dynamics and return the coupled network to its safe domain of operation.
