The paper is concerned with the improvement of the rational representation theory for solving positive-dimensional polynomial systems. The authors simplify the expression of rational representation set proposed by Tan and Zhang (2010), obtain the simplified rational representation with less rational representation sets, and hence reduce the complexity for representing the variety of a positive-dimensional ideal. As an application, the authors compute a “nearly” parametric solution for the SHEPWM problem with a fixed number of switching angles.
