  • Constrained suboptimal Padé model reduction 

    Lucas, T. Nigel (Sage Publications, 1995)
    An extension of a recent Pade suboptimal model reduction method is presented which ensures that the initial time response values of the reduced models coincide with those for the full system for impulse or step inputs. ...
  • Continued-fraction algorithm for biased model reduction 

    Lucas, T. Nigel (Institution of Engineering and Technology, 1983-06)
    An algorithm is presented for linear system reduction which produces biased models such that combinations of retained time moments and Markov parameters may be varied. It is based on the Cauer continued-fraction expansions ...
  • Continued-fraction expansion about two or more points: a flexible approach to linear system reduction 

    Lucas, T. Nigel (Elsevier, 1986-01)
    Model reduction by continued-fraction expansion about two or more points, including the general point s = a, is shown to be a real alternative to the methods which guarantee stability. Suitable choice of a is seen to ...
  • Differentiation reduction method as a multipoint Pade approximant 

    Lucas, T. Nigel (Institution of Engineering and Technology, 1988-01)
    The differentiation method for model order reduction is shown to be a special case of multipoint Pade approximation. This link also extends to other reduction methods where reduced models are generated successively. An ...
  • Discrete-time least-squares Padé order reduction: a stability preserving method 

    Lucas, T. Nigel; Smith, I. D. (Sage Publications, 1998-02)
    A new stability preservation property is proved for the least-squares Padé order reduction method when applied to discrete-time systems. It is shown that the property depends on which free reduced model parameter is chosen ...
  • Efficient algorithm for reduction by continued-fraction expansion about s = 0 and s = a 

    Lucas, T. Nigel (Institution of Engineering and Technology, 1983-11)
    An algorithm is given for model reduction by continued-fraction expansion about the origin and a general point. It is seen to be more efficient than the existing method and has the advantage of also generating biased models. ...
  • Enhancement of the least-squares Padé method for discrete systems 

    Lucas, T. Nigel (Sage Publications, 2000-03)
    The least-squares Padé method for discrete system order reduction is further enhanced. First, it is shown how the method may be extended to produce true least-squares approximations between the time responses of the full ...
  • Evaluation of scalar products of repeated integrals by Routh algorithm 

    Lucas, T. Nigel (Institution of Engineering and Technology, 1988-09)
    It is shown that evaluation of Gram matrix entries for model reduction information may be carried out by repeated use of the well known Routh algorithm. This procedure is seen to enhance both the understanding and ...
  • Extension of matrix method for complete multipoint Pade approximation 

    Lucas, T. Nigel (Institution of Engineering and Technology, 1993-09)
    A recent multipoint Pade approximation technique for linear system reduction is extended to include expansion points at infinity. The method is then seen to be completely general, covering the cases of real, complex, ...
  • Factor division: a useful algorithm in model reduction 

    Lucas, T. Nigel (Institution of Engineering and Technology, 1983-11)
    An alternative approach is given for linear-system reduction by Pade approximation to allow retention of dominant modes. It avoids calculation of system time moments and the solution of Pade equations by simply dividing ...
  • Finding roots by deflated polynomial approximation 

    Lucas, T. Nigel (Elsevier, 1990)
    A numerical technique is presented which evaluates the roots of polynomials with real coefficients. Features of the method include no complex arithmetic requirements, no need to guess at initial quadratic factor estimates, ...
  • Finding roots of polynomials by using the Routh array 

    Lucas, T. Nigel (Institution of Engineering and Technology, 1996-08)
    A robust method for finding the roots of polynomials using the Routh array is given. Certain multipoint approximation properties of the array are clarified, which enable a simple criterion to be used in the root-finding ...
  • Flexible time-response matching in discrete model reduction 

    Lucas, T. Nigel (Sage Publications, 2000-08)
    A simple way to match the time responses of the full- and reduced-order models at arbitrary sampling points is given for discrete-time systems. It is seen to be a natural extension of the Padé methods and is particularly ...
  • Frequency-domain reduction of linear systems using Schwarz approximation 

    Lucas, T. Nigel; Davidson, A. M. (Taylor & Francis, 1983)
    A frequency domain approach for reducing linear, time-invariant systems is presented which produces stable approximations of stable systems. The method is based upon the Schwarz canonical form and is shown to have a ...
  • Further discussion on impulse energy approximation 

    Lucas, T. Nigel (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 1987-02)
    Recent criticisms by Rao about impulse energy approximation are answered in detail. Further ideas are put forward as to how weighted energy parameters may be used to determine the reduced models for step inputs.
  • Least-squares moment matching reduction methods 

    Smith, I. D.; Lucas, T. Nigel (Institution of Engineering and Technology, 1995-05)
    It is shown how the two apparently different approaches to modelling reduction by least-squares time moment matching give identical results. This property also enables a clear understanding of how the method actually ...
  • Least-squares Pade reduction: a nonuniqueness property 

    Lucas, T. Nigel; Smith, I. D. (Institution of Engineering and Technology, 1995-09)
    It is shown that least-squares Pade reduced order models are not unique for a given order. Depending on which reduced denominator coefficient is chosen to be unity. The method is seen to minimise an error index over different ...

    Lucas, T. Nigel (Institution of Engineering and Technology, 1983-03)
    A method of reduction is given which uses the concept of expanding the system transfer function about the origin and about a general point. This results in good overall responses, and families of reduced models of the same ...
