v4.6.1 Release Announcement
We are pleased to announce the release of PSCAD™/EMTDC™ v4.6.1.
This version is available today and includes exciting enhancements to existing features, as well as fixes!
Enhancements in v4.6.1 include:
Enhanced License Manager
- The license manager software now permits licensing to client machines across multiple networks. The license manager is no longer restricted to licensing across a single network.
Parallel Computing Features
New parallel computing features may now be used with lock-based licenses as of v4.6.1. These features, already available with certificate licensing, allow simulations across multiple computer cores for faster simulations. For more information, please refer to the document “Parallel Computing Features”, posted here.
