The EPE is a spreadsheet tool that helps you estimate power consumption at early design concept. You download the EPE tool from the Early Power Estimators (EPE) and Power Analyzer page in the Altera website.

The Intel® Quartus® Prime Pro Edition Power Analyzer tool performs post-fitting power analysis and generates a report that details power consumption of the design by block type and entity. To open the Power Analyzer tool, click Processing > Power Analyzer Tool.
