Power System Studies & Design

Neplan Studies
iEngineering Australia is the Authorised Distributor of NEPLAN Power System Analysis Software and is part of the international NEPLAN®-Consulting group. iEngineering in conjunction with the NEPLAN®-Consulting group offers a wide range of power system studies & design consultancies. More than 600 projects all over the world have already been successfully realised. The NEPLAN®-Consulting group conducts studies to evaluate energy markets, solve electric system design, planning and operations related problems, perform system engineering, and provide equipment application expertise. We help you to optimize the value of your energy assets and transactions, and to better design, plan and operate your transmission, distribution, industrial systems, and/or merchant plant integration projects.
