We present an algorithm for passivity verification and enforcement of multivariate macromodels whose state-space matrices depend in closed form on a set of external or design parameters. Uniform passivity throughout the parameter space is a fundamental requirement of parameterized macromodels of physically passive structures, that must be guaranteed during model generation. Otherwise, numerical instabilities may occur, due to the ability of non-passive models to generate energy. In this work, we propose the first available algorithm that, starting from a generic parameter-depedent state-space model, identifies the regions in the frequency-parameter space where the model behaves locally as a non-passive system. The approach we pursue is based on an adaptive sampling scheme in the parameter space, which iteratively constructs and perturbs the eigenvalue spectrum of suitable Skew-Hamiltonian/Hamiltonian (SHH) pencils, with the objective of identifying the regions where some of these eigenvalues become purely imaginary, thus pinpointing local passivity violations. The proposed scheme is able to detect all relevant violations. An outer iterative perturbation method is then applied to the model coefficients in order to remove such violations and achieve uniform passivity. Although a formal proof of global convergence is not available, the effectiveness of the proposed implementation of the passivity verification and enforcement schemes is demonstrated on several examples.
