Normalized Coprime Factor Reduction
A special model reduction routine
ncfmr produces a reduced-order model by truncating a balanced coprime
set of a given model. It can directly simplify a modern controller with integrators to a
smaller size by balanced truncation of the normalized coprime factors. It does not need
modreal for pre-/postprocessing as the
other routines do. However, any integrators in the model will not be preserved.
rng(89,'twister'); K= rss(30,4,3); [Kred,info2] = ncfmr(K);
Again, without specifying the size of the reduced-order model, any model reduction
routine presented here will plot a Hankel singular value bar chart and prompt you for a
reduced model size. In this case, enter
Then, plot the singular values of the original and reduced-order models.

If integral control is important, previously mentioned methods (except
ncfmr) can nicely preserve the original integrator(s) in the
