The objective of this paper is to present a methodology to modularly connect Multi-Layer Perceptron (MLP) neural network models describing static port-based physical behavior. The MLP considered in this work are characterized for an standard format with a single hidden layer with sigmoidal activation functions. Since every port is defined by an input-output pair, the number of outputs of the proposed neural network format is equal to the number of its inputs. This work extends the Model Assembly Method (MAM) used to connect transfer function models and Volterra models to multi-layer perceptron neural networks.
