A procedure to modularly and recursively assemble port-based hybrid models is introduced. This work extends the conventional Modular Assembly Method for linear and affine models. Hybrid models offer a unifying framework to characterize and predict processes or phenomena that exhibit both continuous and discrete dynamic behavior. The main features of the proposed method are portability and protection of content. The connection of a three-gear transmission model on an electric motor model illustrates the assembly, condensation and simulation of a hybrid model without revealing the connection topology of the modeling components.
