Simulator Pricing

PowerWorld Simulator and Add-On Pricing

PowerWorld Simulator solves fully functional power flows, including area transactions, for systems of up to 250,000 buses.  Pricing starts at $11,000 for the base package.

Several optional product add-ons are available for use with Simulator:

Whether you choose to purchase a single-user license, multiple single licenses, or a site license, you will be entitled to one year of free upgrades and support. At the end of that year, commercial users may renew the maintenance agreement at 20% of the corresponding license’s price at that time. This would again entitle you to upgrades and support for the following year. Pricing below applies to commercial licenses.
