1. MATLAB (Software for Numerical Computing)
MATLAB (MATrix LABarotary) is the most popular electrical engineering software among Electrical Engineering students. It was launched in 1983 by Mathworks Inc. and was one of the first commercial packages for linear algebra. It has evolved over time and has become the most comprehensive software for Numerical Computing, Dyanimc System Simulations, Algebraic Solutions, Symbolic Mathematics etc. It contains add-on packages (called Toolboxes) for various functionalities. Toolboxes provide built-in functions to perform numerical computations including but not limited to Ordinary & Partial Differential Equations, Optimization, Linear System Implementation, Linear Algebra, Control System Design, System Identification, Curve Fitting.
The programing language used in MATLAB (The software package) is also called Matlab. Matlab is a high-level programming language, it contains a good number of built-in functions to efficiently deal with matrices, numerical computations, symbolic mathematics etc.
2. Power World Simulator
PowerWorld Simulator is an interactive power system simulation package designed to simulate high voltage power system operation on a time frame ranging from several minutes to several days. The software contains a highly effective power flow analysis package capable of efficiently solving systems of up to 250,000 buses.
The functionality of PowerWorld Simulator can be increased by adding serveral additional add-on to the base simulator package. The add-ons can be used for Distributed Computing, adding the effect of Geomagnetically Induced Currents (GIC), Integrated topology processing, optimal power flow, transient stability, voltage stability (PVQV) and many more.
3. PSCAD (Electromagnetic Transient Analysis Software)
PSCAD is an electrical engineering software package for electromagnetic transient analysis in power systems. It is developed by Manitoba Hydro Int. Ltd. based on the slogan “If you can dream it, you can simulate it“.
As power systems evolve, the need for accurate, intuitive simulation tools becomes more and more important. With PSCAD™/EMTDC™ you can build, simulate, and model your systems with ease, providing limitless possibilities in power system simulation. Included is a comprehensive library of system models ranging from simple passive elements and control functions to electric machines and other complex devices.
Simulink is the GUI based companion software for Matlab. It is powered by Matlab programming language. Many electrical engineers find Simulink much easier to use than MATLAB. When you use MATLAB® and Simulink® together, you combine textual and graphical programming to design your system in a simulation environment. Directly using the thousands of algorithms that are already in MATLAB. Use MATLAB to create input data sets to drive simulation. Run thousands of simulations in parallel. Then analyze and visualize the data in MATLAB.
Though Simulink is a general purpose software for implementing graphical simulation, it has a specialized toolbox for simulating Power Systems. It can be used to simulate, analyze renewable energy resources, transmission lines, electrical transients, standby switching of power supply.
