As power systems evolve, the need for accurate, intuitive simulation tools becomes more and more important.
PSCAD enables the user to schematically construct a circuit, run a simulation, analyse the results, and manage the data in a completely integrated, graphical environment. Online plotting functions, controls and meters are also included, enabling the user to alter system parameters during a simulation run, and thereby view the effects while the simulation is in progress.
PSCAD comes complete with a library of pre-programmed and tested simulation models, ranging from simple passive elements and control functions, to more complex models, such as electric machines, full-on FACTS devices, transmission lines and cables.
PSCAD has benefited from over 40 years of continuous research and development. Today, approximately 35000 PSCAD licenses are used by over 2500 organizations in 80 countries.
