The super node algorithm performs model order reduction based on physical principles. Although the algorithm provides us with compact models, its stability and passivity have not thoroughly been studied yet. The loss of passivity is a serious problem because simulations of the reduced network may encounter artificial behavior which render the simulations useless. In this paper we explain why the algorithm delivers not passive reduced order models and present a way in order to overcome this problem.
