NEPLAN | Free Demo / Student Version


The free demo / student version is a restricted and simplified, but fully executable version, which allows to enter and calculate networks up to 15 nodes and includes the basic calculation modules: Load Flow, Short Circuit, Dynamic Simulator, Harmonic Analysis, Overcurrent Protection and Reliability Analysis.

Although it contains only a very limited range of functions you will get a good overview of the software and there are many pre-defined examples as well as pre-defined libraries for network elements, protection devices and control circuits for dynamic analysis available. The pre-defined examples with the libraries could be very well used for educational purposes. There are no differences between the demo version and the student version. It will expire after six months and could be prolonged by Email request.
