The aim of the paper is to propose three computer tools to create electromagnetic simulation programs: GiD, Kratos and EMANT.
The paper presents a review of numerical methods for solving electromagnetic problems and presentation of the main features of GiD, Kratos and EMANT.
The paper provides information about three computer tools to create electromagnetic simulation packages: GiD (geometrical modeling, data input, visualisation of results), Kratos (C++ library) and EMANT (finite element software for solving Maxwell equations).
The proposed platforms are in development and future work should be done to validate the codes for expecific problems and to provide extensive manual and tutorial information.
The tools could be easily learnt by different user profiles: from end‐users interested in simulation programs to developers of simulation packages.
This paper offers an integrated vision of open and easily customisable tools for the demands of different users profiles.
