A systematic approach is proposed in this paper for model simplification in order to reduce the number of state variables and parameters. The approach is applied for simplifying a lumped hybrid index-1 model of a single protection valve with electronic actuation that was originally developed from first engineering principles. The resulted simplified model preserves the engineering meaning of its state variables, while the number of state variables and parameters is decreased significantly.
