A novel procedure for systematically generating state-space equations for multiport systems is presented. The method is based upon a bond graph representation of the system and causal manipulation of the field equations. Principal advantages of the method are the ability to anticipate formulation properties before writing equations, the availability of a simple check for correctness of the initial system relations, and the specification of a systematic reduction procedure for obtaining state-space equations in terms of energy variables.
