We have developed a new method for the construction of Streamline Upwind Petrov Galerkin (SUPG) stabilization techniques for the resolution of convection-diffusion equations based on the use of separated representations inside the Proper Generalized Decompositions (PGD) framework. The use of SUPG schemes produces a consistent stabilization adding a parameter to all the terms of the equation (not only the convective one). SUPG obtains an exact solution for problems in 1D, nevertheless, a generalization does not exist for elements of high order or for any system of convection-diffusion equations. We introduce in this paper a method that achieves stabilization in the context of Proper Generalzied Decomposition (PGD). This class of approximations use a representation of the solution by means of the sum of a finite number of terms of separable functions. Thus it is possible to use the technique of separation of variables in the context of problems of convection-diffusion that will lead to a sequence of problems in 1D where the parameter of stabilization is well known.
