Implementation of harmonic balance reduce model order equation

Abstract : MOR recently became a well-known research field, due to the interest that it shows in reducing the system, which saves time, memory, and CPU cost for CAD tools. This field contains two branches, linear and nonlinear MOR, the linear MOR is a mature domain with well-established theory and numerical techniques. Meanwhile, nonlinear MOR domain is still stammering, and so far it didn’t show good and successful results in electrical circuit simulation. Some improvements however started to pop-up recently, and research is still going on this field because of the help that it can give to the contemporary simulators, especially with the growth of the electronic chips in terms of size and complexity due to industrial demands towards integrating systems on the same chip. A significant contribution in the MOR technique of HB solution has been proposed a decade ago by E. Gad and M. Nakhla. The technique has shown to provide a substantial system dimension reduction while preserving the precision of the output in steady state analysis. This MOR method uses the technique of projection via Krylov, and it preserves the passivity of the system. However, it suffers a number of important limitations in the construction of the pre-conditioner matrix which is ought to reduce the system. The main limitation is the necessity for explicit factorization as a power series of the equation of the nonlinear devices. This makes the technique difficult to apply in general purpose simulator conditions. This thesis will review the aspects of the nonlinear model order reduction technique for harmonic balance equations, and it will study solutions to overcome the above mentioned limitations, in particular using numerical differentiation approaches.
