This paper presents a novel isomorphic detection to automatically detection structures for the transmission configurations by using the matrix calculation method. The isomorphic detection process includes two main part. The first part is classifying the various components of the transmission structure. The second part is to detect the isomorphic structures from the numerous structures. By applying the proposed detect approach, the structures obtained by different synthesis algorithm can be greatly reduced. Furthermore, by analyzing and transforming the hybrid configuration to conventional transmission configuration, the approach can be expanded the scope of use of the algorithm. The proposed detection approach is capable of automatically detecting the isomorphic structure from the potential structures obtained by synthesis algorithm.
