We investigate different emergent dynamics, namely, oscillation quenching and revival of oscillation, in a global network of identical oscillators coupled with diffusive (positive) delay coupling as it is perturbed by symmetry breaking localized repulsive delayed interaction. Starting from the oscillatory state (OS), we systematically identify three types of transition phenomena in the parameter space: (1) The system may reach inhomogeneous steady states from the homogeneous steady state sometimes called as the transition from amplitude death (AD) to oscillation death (OD) state, i.e., OS-AD-OD scenario, (2) Revival of oscillation (OS) from the AD state (OS-AD-OS), and (3) Emergence of the OD state from the oscillatory state (OS) without passing through AD, i.e., OS-OD. The dynamics of each node in the network is assumed to be governed either by the identical limit cycle Stuart-Landau system or by the chaotic Rössler system. Based on clustering behavior observed in the oscillatory network, we derive a reduced low-dimensional model of the large network. Using the reduced model, we investigate the effect of time delay on these transitions and demarcate OS, AD, and OD regimes in the parameter space. We also explore and characterize the bifurcation transitions present in both systems. The generic behavior of the low dimensional model and full network is found to match satisfactorily.
