The relationship between the port constitutive equations of a bond graph junction structure and the constitutive equations of its individual junctions is investigated. By combining network, bond graph, and graph theoretic techniques, the roles of bond orientation and causal assignments in determining when internal bond variables may be eliminated are examined. Graphical criteria are proven for establishing when a junction structure is an n-port.
