This paper presents the PowerGrids library, which is aimed at the modelling of large-scale power transmission and distribution system. The requirements and design principles of the library are extensively discussed, as well as some key implementation details. The library represents a prototype implementation of the presented requirements and design guidelines, and will form the basis for the future development of an industrial-grade open-source library to be used by European TSOs and DSOs.
