Port-based approach to distributed transfer function method



In the paper there is presented an uniform, port-based approach to modeling of both lumped and distributed parameter systems. Port-based model of distributed system has been defined by application of distributed transfer function method (DTFM). The approach proposed combines versatility of port – based modeling and accuracy of distributed transfer function method. It enables to formulate appropriate input data for computer analysis by application of DTFM. The concise representation of lumped-distributed systems is obtained. (© 2009 Wiley-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co.
