We report inelastic neutron scattering measurements and random phase approximation calculations of the dispersive crystal field excitations of UPd3. The measured spectra at lower energies agree with those calculated using quadrupolar interaction parameters deduced from bulk and x-ray scattering measurements. The more intense excitations arising from the hexagonal sites were used to obtain exchange parameters which proved to be anisotropic.
