Demonstration 1 | Play | WMV Format - 2.70MB - 3min 10s

This demonstration introduces a simple project mangement model interface. It shows us how to change our inputs, and how to read the behaviour of the simulation.

Tip! To edit the models in Powersim Studio that have been saved to open in presentation mode (like the demonstration model has) first start the Powersim Studio program, then use the 'open' command to open the model. It will still open in presentation mode, but you will now be able to exit presentation mode by hitting the 'Toggle Presentation Mode' button in the toolbar.

Can I build a model like this? It's simple once you're shown how.

Once you've watched Demonstration 1, why not try out our challenge? We think you can build the demo yourself in two hours by following the 9 lessons below. Don't believe us? Try it for yourself…

Two important things to do before you start:

  1. Download Powersim Studio Express here, the free time-limited edition allowing you to create your own simulations and follow the lessons below.
  2. Start Powersim Studio. To complete the lesson you'll need to open the Advanced Workspace. (View › Workspace › Restore User Interface › Advanced in the toolbar)
