Automatic and semi-automatic control of large-scale interconnected systems, also known as network systems (Newman, Networks: an introduction, Oxford University Press, Oxford, 2010, [101]; Barrabasi and Albert, Science, 286(5439):509–512, 1999, [10]), remains a challenging problem due to the increasing interactions between multi-variable subsystems connected in parallel, parallelised, serial and recirculation. In a broad sense, a network system can be modelled as a large set of interconnected nodes, in which a node is a fundamental unit with specific contents (Li and Chen, Phys A Stat Mech Appl, 343:263–278, 2004, [81]). The network system notion is extended over many application domains such as, but not limited to, chemical and petrochemical processes, power systems, telecommunication systems, transportation systems, supply chain systems, networked robotics and biological systems.
