After all environment and activity settings are defined, you can run the power analysis algorithm using the report_power command. An example is:

Vivado% report_power -file routed.pwr -xpe design_top.xpe

The tool does the following:

  1. Loads your environment settings and design netlist.
  2. Annotates activity for any netlist element you specified with input files or Tcl commands.
    Note: For all undefined nodes, the tool uses the vectorless propagation engine to estimate activity, taking into account activity of known elements and logic configuration and connectivity.
  3. Calculates and reports the design thermal and supply power.
