Electrical Engineering Softwares

Electrical Engineering involves designing, development, prototyping, programming, testing and simulation of electrical equipment and systems. There are so many softwares are available and used for electrical engineers.

Electrical engineering is the design, building and maintenance of electrical control systems, machinery and equipment. It is widely use in every aspects around the world. Electrical designers are requiring having good skills for PCB design, simulation software and programming. Electrical engineering softwares are mainly used to design circuits, electrical drafting, PCB design, simulation and testing of electrical equipments, programming, etc. These softwares help engineers and designers to build a strong career path in electrical engineering.

Some of the electrical engineering softwares are listed below:

AutoCAD Electrical:

AutoCAD is one of the most popular CAD design software developed by Autodesk. AutoCAD Electrical is specially design for Electrical Industrial Designing.

AutoCAD Electrical has some great features for electrical engineers and designers. It is used to draw single in diagrams, switchboard arrangements, motor control circuit schematics, etc. and also very useful for designing industrial plant layouts, PCB designs, cable arrangements design, motor control contactors, junction boxes, etc.

SOLIDWORKS Electrical:

SOLIDWORKS Electrical helps to simplify electrical product designs with specific tools for electrical engineers and designers for faster embedded electrical system design. It is standard and very useful software for engineers and designers.

SOLIDWORKS Electrical used for designing electrical 3D product models, PCB designs, interconnections for complex electrical systems, etc. It is also integrated with electro-mechanical collaboration solution.


MATLAB (MATrix LABoratory) is a multi-paradigm numerical computing software for numerical computing, iterative analysis and design process with a programming language. It is one of the most popular software for engineering and science developed by Mathworks in the year 1983.

MATLAB toolboxes are professionally developed, rigorously tested and fully documented. It allows matrix manipulations, plotting of functions and data. MATLAB is very popular and has more than 3 million users worldwide. It allows matrix manipulations, plotting of functions and data, implementation of algorithms and interfacing with programs written in other languages.


Simulink is the GUI based software for Dynamic System Simulation. It is powered by MATLAB. Simulink is a general purpose software for implementing graphical programming to design your system in a simulation environment. It is used to simulate, analyze transmission lines, electrical transients, and renewable energy resources.


ETAP (Electrical Transient Analyzer Program) is a Electrical Power System Analysis & Operation Software company specializing in the analysis, simulation, monitoring, control, optimization, and automation of electrical power systems. It is used to perform control system design, relay coordination and protection design, power flow analysis, etc.

ETAP electrical engineering software offers the best and most comprehensive suite of integrated power system enterprise solution.


Multisim is a circuit simulation and PCB design software. It is used for simulation with an interactive schematic environment to visualize and analyze electronic circuit behavior.


Pspice stands for Personal Simulation Program with Integrated Circuit Emphasis. Pspice is a modified version of academically developed SPICE. OrCAD Espice is a SPICE simulator application for simulation and verification of analog and mixed signal circuits.


LabVIEW (Laboratory Virtual Instruments Engineering Workbench) is a systems engineering software for applications that require test, measurement and control with rapid access to hardware and data insights.
