This paper reviews and extends a technique to detect weak coupling (one-way coupling or complete decoupling) among elements of a dynamic system model, and to partition and reduce models in which weak coupling is found. The ability to partition a model increases the potential for physical-domain model reduction, and allows parallel simulation of smaller individual submodels that can reduce computation time. Negligible constraint equation terms are identified and eliminated in a bond graph by… CONTINUE READING
