In this paper we present an automatic order reduction of a linear thermo-electric model describing a novel type of micropropulsion device. Model order reduction is essential to achieve easily to evaluate, yet accurate macromodel of the device. We present numerical simulation results of the full finite element model and the different reduced order models that describe the transient thermo-electric behaviour of the device. The advantages of an Arnoldi-algorithm-based model order reduction over a commercially available reduced order modeling after Guyan are shown.
