You can enumerate through the installed instances using the simple sample on MSDN here: https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/a6t1z9x2(v=vs.110).aspx

NOTE: If an instance has been explicitly hidden by the administrators by changing the properties of the SQL Server Browser service on the server, this script may not be able to identify these instances.

Do you happen to have software auditing of some sort available?  (System Center Configuration Manager (SCCM) would be one option for example, or some endpoint protection suites include software inventory functionality as well.)
You can get a partial picture of your installed SQL Server instances, by querying the default port (tcp/1433), or querying the SQL Browser, but the Browser can be disabled, and SQL can be configured to not listen on the default port (or any port).  For those reasons, my first suggestion would be a client which collects software inventory.

I got SQL Server informations with Microsoft Assessment and Planning (MAP) Toolkit for SQL Server. It's very complex and detailed, exactly what i want.

Again thank you for your tip.
