In this presentation, we will talk about networks of $d \in \mathbb{N}$ scalar conservation laws with positive characteristic velocities. The interaction takes place at the boundary, where a feedback operator acts. The open loop system is given below with $H$ a square matrix given by the physics having a destabilizing effect:

R_t + [f(R)]_x &=& 0 \
R(t,0) &=& HR(t,1) + u(t) \
R(0,x) &=& R_0(x)

To stabilize this system, we design a feedback control of the form $u(t)=K R(1,t)$ where $K$ is a control gain to be designed. Such stabilization problem had been widely treated in the literature in various settings [2,3]. Nonetheless for the discretized version of the problem, it is far from being obvious that a control synthesized from the continuous theory stabilizes the discretized open-loop system.

In this talk, we focus on numerical aspects related to system (1). Using flux limiter schemes [1], we study the influence of the choice of the limiter on the $BV$ exponential stability of numerical solutions.
