To draw an Electrical and Electronic Circuit Diagram like a pro you need to learn simulation tools. Most of the tools are paid but students can get free versions. You can check PCB design also to draw diagrams.
In order to eligible for a free version, you need to accept the tool service provider terms and conditions.
Now Let us see the different types of Tools available for drawing electrical and electronics Circuit Diagram.
Whether you are a student or a working professional, you are eligible for a one-month free trial of this software.
When comes to circuit Diagram MATLAB is the best of all but school students need some practice to draw a circuit on MATLAB.
All the tools necessary for electrical are available in their package itself.
If you are a newbie, read this MATLAB alternative.
The system requirements may differ from version to version and Operation System.
MATLAB can be used to solve problems involving complex iteration, Matrices, and export/import data operations. MATLAB Simulation can be used to check the theoretical Value with Practical Value (Cool feature na…)
2. AutoCAD Electrical:
AutoCAD is another interesting tool mainly used for Drawing Residential/Industrial Wiring Diagrams. Core Designing process like Transformer Design, Generator Design also use AutoCAD.
AutoCAD (Electrical) offers a 30 Day trial version for all. By default, you will be getting AutoCAD package for Civil Engineering.
The default package can be used free for 3 years if you select the Student version but the electrical AutoCAD is free only for 30 days from the day of installation.
AutoCAD supports 2D and 3D. So you can get the real-time look of your work using this Software.
For smooth functioning, your system should have high-end RAM and Video Card (Graphic Card). For best performance use DDR4 RAM with Nvidia Graphic Cards.
- The default installation itself takes around 7GB. For electrical package around 6GB. Make sure to have a high-speed internet connection.
- Free up enough space in the drive that you are going to install.

3. PSpice Orcad:
The above two tools are limited when comes to electronic Diagrams, Pscpice Orcad can be used for drawing any kind of electronic circuits.
This tool is very easier to draw complex circuits involving microprocessors and Integrated circuits. If an IC is not available in default package then you can download the respective package from online.
These three tools are enough to draw any kind of circuit diagrams.
