For controller implementation and due to practical considerations a reduced order model is usually needed. So in this work, the problem of order reduction of nonlinear multi time scales systems in the framework of singular perturbations is addressed. A successive separation algebraic procedure is proposed to derive a polynomial reduced model by using the Kronecker product based state representation and the properties of the tensor algebra.
