I think partial reconfiguration is an academical topic. Take a look at the manual of planahead how and if it support partial reconfiguration. Also ask Xilinx: http://www.xilinx.com/tools/partialreconfiguration.htm Duke

You actually need to designate reconfigurable modules which can be reconfigured. I'd start here: http://www.xilinx.com/itp/xilinx7/books/data/docs/dev/dev0038_8.html

You also need a special licence from Xilinx to use partial reconfiguration with PlanAhead. It isn't cheap as far as I know... but if you are a student you can ask your professor to get in contact with the Xilinx University program. In this program, Xilinx maybe give you an academic licence for a symbolic donation.
