The geometric formulation of general port-Hamiltonian systems is used in order to obtain two structure preserving reduction methods. The main idea is to construct a reduced-order Dirac structure corresponding to zero power flow in some of the energy-storage ports. This can be performed in two canonical ways, called the effort- and the flow-constraint methods. We show how the effort-constraint method can be regarded as a projection-based model reduction method.
