This paper presents a uniform, port-based approach for modeling of both lumped and distributed parameter systems. Port-based model of the distributed system has been defined by application of bond graph methodology and distributed transfer function method (DTFM). The proposed approach combines versatility of port-based modeling and accuracy of distributed transfer function method. A concise representation of lumped-distributed systems has been obtained. The proposed method of modeling enables to formulate input data for computer analysis by application of DTFM.
