1. INTRODUCTION

Abstract

In this paper, a new method is presented to derive a reduced order model for a discrete time systems. This method is based on modified pole clustering technique and pade approximations which are conceptually simple and computer oriented. The denominator polynomial of the reduced order model is obtained by using modified pole clustering technique and numerator coefficients are obtained by Pade approximations. This method generates stable reduced models if the original higher order system is stable. The proposed method is illustrated with the help of typical numerical examples considered from the literature.

Keywords: Model Order Reduction, Modified Pole Clustering, Pade approximation, Cluster centre, Inverse Distance Measure.

The modeling of a higher order system is one of the most important subjects in engineering and sciences. A model is often too complicated to be used in real life problems. It is an un-debated conclusion that, the development of mathematical model of physical system made it feasible to analyze and design. So the procedures based on the physical considerations or mathematical models are used to achieve simpler models than the original one. Whenever a physical system is represented by a mathematical model it may a transfer function of very high order. Available methods for analysis and design may become cumbersome when applied to a system of higher order. At this juncture, application of large scale order reduction methods is inevitable to reduce computational effort and process time. Efforts towards obtaining low order models from high order systems are related to the aims of deriving stable reduced order models from the stable original ones and ensuring that reduced-order model matches some quantities of the original one. Many methods are available in the international literature that addresses the main objective of the modeling of large-scale systems. Several methods are available in the literature for the order reduction of linear continuous

systems in time domain as well as frequency domain [1]-[8].The methods belonging to time domain are Lageurre polynomials [9] and Krylov method [10] the methods belonging to the frequency domain are Routh Approximation Method suggested by Hutton and Fried Land [11], continued fraction expansion method [12] given by Shamash, Moment Matching Method and Pade Approximation methods. The reduced order model obtained in the frequency domain gives better matching of the impulse response with its high order system. Many of these methods can be easily extended to discrete time systems by applying simple transformations [13,14].

In this paper, the authors proposed a method for the order reduction of high order discrete time systems using modified pole clustering technique. The original higher order discrete system is transformed to continuous time system by applying linear transformation and the reduced order model is derived for the continuous time system, by using modified pole clustering technique and pade approximation. And finally corresponding inverse transformation yields reduced order model in discrete time system.

3. REDUCTION PROCEDURE

The proposed method for getting the order reduced model, consists of the following two steps:

Step1: Determination of the denominator polynomial for the order reduced model, using modified pole clustering technique.

Step2: Determination of the numerator of order reduced model using Pade approximation.

The following rules are used for clustering the poles of the original system to get the denominator polynomial for reduced order models.

1. Separate clusters should be made for real poles and complex poles.

2. Poles on the jw-axis have to be retained in

3. Clusters of poles in the left half s-plane should not contain any pole of the right half s-plane and vice-versa.

Convert the higher order discrete time system into P domain using linear transformation Z=P+1.

Therefore the transfer function of higher order original system of order n in P-domain is

By using a simple method, Inverse Distance Measure, the cluster center can be formed as follows:

Let there be a r real poles in one cluster are
