Model Reduction for Systems with Inhomogeneous Initial Conditions
MetadataShow full item record
We consider the model reduction problem for linear time-invariant dynamical systems having nonzero (but otherwise indeterminate) initial conditions. Building upon the observation that the full system response is decomposable as a superposition of the response map for an unforced system having nontrivial initial conditions and the response map for a forced system having null initial conditions, we develop a new approach that involves reducing these component responses independently and then combining the reduced responses into an aggregate reduced system response. This approach allows greater flexibility and offers better approximation properties than other comparable methods.
