How to Purchase

How much does it cost? What about upgrades?

Commercial Version

A price sheet is available for PowerWorld Simulator and its associated Add-Ons.  For other products, or any questions, please contact us for a quote. Software licenses include upgrades and support for one year. Additional licenses are available at a substantial discount.

Commercial Upgrades and Support

Simulator license purchases come with a one year maintenance agreement entitling users to upgrades and technical support. Renewal of maintenance is 25% of the current list price per year. Renewal is calculated from the expiration date to one year from the expiration date, or from the expiration date to one year from the current date, whichever is longer, up until renewal equals the cost of a new license. Maintenance includes full customer support as well as all upgrades and software patches.
