This paper compares and discusses four techniques for model order reduction based on compressed sensing (CS), less relevant basis removal (LRBR), principal component analysis (PCA) and partial least squares (PLS). CS and PCA have already been used for reducing the order of power amplifier (PA) behavioral models for digital predistortion (DPD) purposes. While PLS, despite being popular in some signal processing areas, to the best author's knowledge, still has not been used in the PA
