ABSTRACT
The goal of this investigation is to develop a simulation-
based control strategy to eliminate flow-maldistribution in paral-
lel microchannels. An accurate simulation of fluid flow through
parallel microchannels is achieved by utilizing a fictitious do-
main representation of immersed objects, such as microvalves
and bubbles. System identification techniques are employed to
produce a lower dimensional model that captures the essential
dynamics of the full nonlinear flow, in terms of a relationship be-
