This paper proposes two distinct approaches, namely Piece-by-Piece MNA and General MNA, for construction of Modified Nodal Analysis (MNA) matrices in order to be used in Model Order Reduction (MOR) techniques. In this work, we successfully applied the proposed approaches to construct MNA matrices of a multi-port network with several sub-circuits, then, reduced order of network using obtained MNA matrices in each approach. As a numerical example, the Y-parameters of full-order and reduced-order networks for a 4-port optical network, operating in frequency range 175-215 THz, are obtained through the proposed approaches, validated through simulating in Advanced Design System (ADS) software, and compared in terms of order of system (or matrix dimensions), execution time, Root Mean Square Error (RMSE), reduction controllability, reduction efficiency, and passivity point of view.
