Recently, robust algorithms have been established for passive order reduction of electrical models of complex interconnection networks. However, very little is known about the way the order of the reduced model should be chosen to ensure accuracy in subsequent transient simulation studies. In this paper, a rule is derived for the selection of the order of the reduced model for interconnections modeled as transmission lines. It is shown that pulse rise time, interconnection length, and physical properties impact the order of the reduced model. The proposed rule is validated through numerical studies involving both analytic and numerical results from the frequency- and time-domain response of multiconductor transmission line circuits.
