We introduce the notion of perturbations of quantum stochastic models using the series product and establish the asymptotic convergence of sequences of quantum stochastic models under the assumption that they are related via a right series product perturbation. While the perturbing models converge to the trivial model, we allow that the individual sequences may be divergent corresponding to large model parameter regimes that frequently occur in physical applications. This allows us to introduce the concept of asymptotically equivalent models, and we provide several examples where we replace one sequence of models with an equivalent one tailored to capture specific features. These examples include a series product formulation of the principle of virtual work; essential commutativity of the noise in strong squeezing models; the decoupling of polarization channels in scattering by Faraday rotation driven by a strong laser field; and an application to quantum local asymptotic normality.
