MIMO System Order Reduction Using Basic Characteristics and Factor Division Method

In this paper, a combination of basic characteristics and factor division method has been applied for large-scale linear dynamic multi-input-multi-output (MIMO) system. In this techniques, the denominator polynomial of the reduced order model is obtained by using the basic characteristics of the higher order system which are maintained in the reduced model while the coefficients of the numerator are obtained by using factor division method The reduction procedure is simple computer oriented and the approach is comparable in quality with the other well-known reduction techniques. Also, the proposed method guarantees stability of the reduced model if the original high-order MIMO system is stable. The proposed approach of MIMO system order reduction is illustrated with the help of an example and the results are compared with the recently published other well-known reduction techniques to show its superiority.
