Decentralized control of large-scale active-passive modular systems is considered. These systems consist of physically interconnected and generally heterogeneous modules, where local control signals can be only applied to a subset of these modules (i.e., active modules) and the rest are not subject to any control signals (i.e., passive modules). Using a set-theoretic adaptive control approach predicated on restricted potential functions, we design decentralized command following control architectures for each active module such that they can effectively perform their tasks with strict performance guarantees in the presence of unknown physical interconnections between modules and module-level system uncertainties. The efficacy of the proposed framework is demonstrated in an illustrative numerical example.
