A third-party compiler is required for building PSCAD projects.
The following compilers are supported with PSCAD:
- The free, GFortran compiler that is packaged by MHI, and
- The commercially available Intel® compiler (Intel Parallel Studio Composer Edition for Fortran for Windows, and Intel oneAPI)
Note - If using the Intel compiler, another third-party software is also required, Microsoft® Visual Studio.
More information related to Fortran compiler selection and setup is available in the underlined heading in the left navigation pane of this website.
