Model reduction is a part of dynamic analysis, testing planning, and the control design of structures. Typically, a model with a large number of degrees of freedom, such as one developed for static analysis, causes numerical difficulties in dynamic analysis, to say nothing of the high computational cost. In system identification, on the other hand, the order of the identified system is determined by the reduction of the initially oversized model that includes a noise model. Finally, in structural control design the complexity and performance of a model-based controller depends on the order of the structural model. In all cases the reduction is a crucial part of the analysis and design. Thus, the reduced-order system solves the above problems if it acquires the essential properties of the full-order model.
