A new method is introduced for simulation of nonlinear transmission lines based on model-order reduction using the proper-orthogonal decomposition technique. An algorithm is presented for estimating the optimum order of the resulting reduced nonlinear macromodel ensuring its efficiency and accuracy. In contrast to previous publications, the order-estimation algorithm is integrated with the reduction technique leading to significant reduction in the computational cost associated with the generation of the reduced model.
