Description:

In order to control a system, a model of this system is often needed. However, some standard physical models are too complex to be useful for the controller design. Hence there is a need to simplify them.

The class of port-Hamiltonian models incorporate many (open) physical models, and so a technique to approximate them in a systematic way is needed. The approximated model should still capture the essential physical properties of the original model. A controller can then be designed on the approximation.

Furthermore, to guarantee the desired performance of the controller applied to the original system an error estimate on the approximation is needed.
