The lack of reliable information about actual characteristics and parameters is the main deterrent to the effective application of mathematical and computer-modelling methods for solving problems of optimal reconstruction, adjustment, development of operational condition, dispatching control of pipeline systems. The paper presents the original formalization of the problems of testing pipeline systems for hydraulic and thermal losses as problems of active identification, assuming optimal planning and processing of experimental results on the basis of attracting a mathematical model of steady-state thermal-hydraulic state. The proposed technique consists in a stepwise testing strategy that ensures the extraction of maximum information with a minimum risk of excessive testing, is applicable for different types of testing of pipeline systems of arbitrary structure and configuration. Theoretically, and for an illustrative example, the potential efficiency of combining thermal and hydraulic tests of pipeline systems is shown, which is manifested in minimizing the total number of experiments to obtain a given accuracy in determining the actual characteristics of pipeline systems and the predictive properties of the model.
