The best one is the one that achieves the required particular task in the most efficient way.

As the content of the task has been withheld from the forum, it is difficult for it to advise further.

The best programming is mental programming, in which one understands the important principles before trying to rely on software, which sometimes is GIGO.

Would you accept it if I'll give you Anaconda?

You can't handle earthworm, much less Anaconda.

It depends upon the particular type of analysis you wish to perform; is it loadflow, stability, short circuit, protective relaying, economic dispatch, panelboard design, etc., etc.

First determine your task, then choose the right tool for the job.

btw- having one of these programs on your computer won't make you into an electrical power engineer any more than standing in a garage will make you into a car.

Does that just have a free trial period, or is it completely free to use?

I've been using CoDeSys for the past two years for control programs running in an off-road application. Worth checking out - a cross between C++ and Basic in syntax, clear code construction, available for multiple platforms plus reasonable visualisation tools.
